The Finger Lakes Times reports the school board accepted John DeFazio, Jrs. resignation at its December 13 meeting. Former Assistant Principal Matt Heath has been named Principal. DeFazio, who faces a charge of endangering the welfare of a child, was to have gone on trial this month, but a scheduling conflict with his attorney has postponed the trial. No new trial date has been set.

DeFazio’s attorney says the charge is the result of a vendetta on the part of students upset with DeFazio’s enforcement of the district’s dress code and discipline policies.
