Eastside Catholic

The fallout continues:

The president of Eastside Catholic School has resigned amid the fallout from her decision to dismiss the school’s vice principal for marrying his gay partner. . . 

Her resignation, submitted to the Eastside board of trustees Sunday, was effective immediately, and in an email sent to parents, staff and others on Tuesday evening the school said a search for her replacement will begin right away.

The handling of Zmuda’s dismissal has presented a public-relations challenge for Eastside, with Tracy’s statements about whether the vice principal was fired or resigned, and what role the Seattle archbishop played in that decision, appearing at times to contradict those of the school's attorney and the archdiocese.
