Catholic school news roundup: Seattle, Charlotte, North Dakota

March 07, 2014

The principal of a Catholic high school has been arrested for setting a fire that severely damaged his school in Dickinson, North Dakota.

Thomas Sander, 30, faces felony arson charges, and bail has been set at $500,000. The Bismarck Tribune reported that a juvenile has also been arrested for hindering the investigation.

In addition, the principal of the largest Catholic high school in the Diocese of Charlotte has been placed on leave amid reports of mishandling of funds, and the former vice principal of a Seattle-area Catholic school, who was fired after his same-sex marriage became a matter of public knowledge, has filed a discrimination suit against the school and the archdiocese.
