Volunteer assistant football coach at Ni River Middle School is charged with felony in kicking of seventh-grader at practice
Spotsylvania Superintendent Scott Baker has now requested an outside review of the Human Resources Department to determine whether other background checks have gone undone, she said.
By school policy, anyone who applies to volunteer at a county school must be fingerprinted and undergo the background check.
Hart has held other volunteer positions in the county. He served as a volunteer firefighter with the Spotsylvania Volunteer Fire Department from March 2011 through August of this year and for an undetermined amount of time with the Chancellor department, county Fire Chief Chris Eudailey said. He left as a volunteer in good standing, Eudailey said.
In August, Hart began his application to be a volunteer in Stafford County but did not finish the process, county spokeswoman Cathy Vollbrecht said.
Baker issued the following statement regarding the failure of his Human Resources Department.
"As the new Superintendent of Spotsylvania County Schools, I view this error as unacceptable and not consistent with our number one priority: student safety and well-being."
