The principal of Yellowstone Academy, the educational arm of the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch, was dismissed from his job Tuesday.
Jim Snyder had announced his resignation to the ranch board in February, stating his intention to leave at the end of the school year. However, Snyder sat down with Superintendent Ed Zabrocki on Tuesday, and after the meeting he left his job.
"That's kind of where we are," Zabrocki said.
He declined to give a reason for Snyder's early departure, saying it was a personnel issue and thus private.
The academy began its search for a new principal when Snyder announced his resignation in February. The school is still looking to fill the position.
