Members of the Boone County Board of Education decided a principal will no longer be allowed to work in West Virginia. 

The members of the board approved an agreement that effectively brings closure to the employment status of Keith Phipps. Phipps is the former principal of the Boone County Career and Technical Center. 

The board accepted his resignation Tuesday evening and said Phipps will never again work in the Boone County School system or any other school system in West Virginia.

A Boone County principal and teacher are both facing meth-related charges after being arrested Friday morning.

Jack Turley will face four counts related to the manufacture of methamphetamine and Keith Phipps faces a charge from Kanawha County for purchasing more cold medicine than the law allows.

The West Virginia State Police had been investigating the pair since March, and several other charges could follow, related to the use of drugs on school property.
