Former Walbrook High Uniformed Services Academy Principal Andrey Bundley and city school officials have struck a deal that will allow him to remain a system employee, Bundley's attorney said yesterday.
Attorney Warren A. Brown said that Bundley, who has been on leave since late July, would not be allowed to return to Walbrook but would not be fired. Brown said it was unclear what Bundley's new position or salary would be.
School system officials did not return telephone calls seeking comment, but Brown said they would make an announcement today.
"We are very happy with the outcome," Brown said.
City schools chief Bonnie S. Copeland proposed firing Bundley in September after he was accused of allowing Walbrook students to graduate or move to the next grade without meeting academic requirements.
Bundley, who ran against Mayor Martin O'Malley in last year's 2003 Democratic primary election, has disputed the allegations.
Hearings to discuss the firing proposal had been set for Thursday and Friday, but have been canceled, Brown said.
