The Mercer Island School District announced that Mark Zmuda will become an associate principal at Mercer Island High School, effective July 1.
Zmuda was dismissed from Eastside Catholic High School in December 2013 for marrying his partner the previous summer. He is currently suing the school and the Seattle Archdiocese for discrimination and wrongful termination.
The Mercer Island Superintendent Dr. Gary Plano will recommend that Zmuda is confirmed as associate principal. According to a release from the district, Zmuda was chosen from more than 60 applicants for the position.
"Mark impressed me with his knowledge of best-instructional practices, his integrity and work ethic and his commitment to the success of all students," Dr. Plano said in a release.
Zmuda will also serve as the school's athletic director.
