A report in the Daily NonPareil says an Atlantic man has lost his coaching authorization after being accused of having an inappropriate relationship with a student at the Missouri Valley High School. Former Mo. Valley girls soccer Coach Jason Dulberg’s coaching certificate was revoked by the Iowa Board of Educational Examiners. Dulberg served only as a coach, and not a teacher, for the Missouri Valley Community School District.

Dulberg began working for the Mo.Valley Schools in January 2012. A complaint was filed with the board that September, about the same time Dulberg resigned his position with the district. State documents cited by the paper, said the board found evidence that Dulberg and the girl communicated via text messages and cellphone and that he took her on an overnight, out-of-state trip. Dulberg voluntarily surrendered his coaching authorization April 4. The next day, the board permanently revoked it.

Harrison County Sheriff Patrick Sears said his agency investigated the alleged incidents, but didn’t find enough evidence to make an arrest.
