Dan Morrison

In 2019, Stowe Middle School teachers Charlie Gordon and Jeff Grogan and Principal Dan Morrison, far right, celebrated Grogan’s UVM’s Outstanding Teacher award.

Stowe’s middle school principal resigned abruptly this week, 10 weeks into his 10th school year as principal.

Dan Morrison resigned Tuesday “as a part of a separation agreement,” superintendent Ryan Heraty said Wednesday in an email. He said Morrison will continue to receive his salary until the end of January.

I guess quits conveys abruptness better than resigns , yet “ as part of a separation agreement “ makes it sound as though it was a negotiated departure between the school (officials/ school board) and the principal. I suppose it’s better to negotiate a resignation as opposed to getting fired instead.I hope to read more of the background details about this when they come to light / are disclosed.
