The schools vice principal and a counselor have resigned


Months after sexual assault allegations surfaced, two additional Mount St. Mary administrators have resigned.

The school’s vice principal and a counselor have resigned. The announcement was sent to parents and students.

Last year, Mount St. Mary conducted an independent investigation into sexual assault claims from current and former students.

“At first I was really scared because, honestly, it’s just really traumatizing to have to deal with it again, it’s been a long time and I don’t like to even think about what happened,” one woman said.

Shortly after the investigation results came back in December, the longtime principal resigned. School officials said they could have done better when the allegations were first brought to their attention.

Now, in a letter, school officials say they are done reviewing that investigation, and the vice principal and counselor resigned.

“Now that the review is concluded, we are moving forward with our focus on the Voices for Human Dignity Task Force to ensure our words, actions and policies reflect our mission and Catholic social teachings,” the letter said.
