CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Emails between the president of the state Board of Education and acting superintendent of schools Jim Phares show the two men were communicating about the possible replacement of then-Superintendent Jorea Marple for two months before she was fired.
 
The Charleston Gazette and Charleston Daily Mail obtained emails dating to September under a Freedom of Information Act request.
 
Board President Wade Linger says he asked first Phares for a biography because he was aware of his credentials. But he says the idea of replacing Marple goes further back, to the review of a March 2012 education-efficiency audit.
 
Marple was fired Nov. 15, five months after a positive performance review. Her attorneys say she will sue.
 
The parents of a student have also sued, arguing the board broke open-meeting laws.
