The superintendent sent out this statement today confirming Jones is withdrawing his resignation but no one from the school district has commented on why.
What is known is that Principal Jones turned in his letter of resignation on March 25th. Shortly after, the Selah community responded by speaking up at a school board meeting.
Joe Jones is highly liked and involved in the Selah community. Students and parents say they were shocked to hear he was resigning.
After Jones announced his resignation he said the decision was based on a conversation he and the superintendent, Dr. Debra Howard, had regarding their different leadership styles.
Now, Dr. Howard will decide whether or not to accept the withdrawal.
