Eastern Carver County School district officials have announced Chanhassen High School’s new principal following the arrest of Principal Timothy Dorway. Dick Ungar will replace Dorway after Dorway was charged with seven felony counts of possessing child porn videos.
Eastern Carver County Schools notified parents and students of Ungar’s new role Monday. Ungar has spent 24 years serving the district out of 30 years as an educator. He has worked as a school administrator since 2002 and oversaw the opening of the school in 2009.
Michael Bailey, a social studies teacher at the school, will move into Ungar’s role as assistant principal of athletics. Administrators are working on a plan to fill Bailey’s vacancy in the social studies department.
“The winter break will provide time for that department to organize coverage of his classes for the rest of the school year,” the district said in a statement.
Dorway was hired as a principal for the school in 2010. The district placed him on leave after his arrest at his home in Victoria.
Agents with the state’s internet Crimes Against Children Task Force arrested Dorway on Dec. 13. A judge ordered that he have no unsupervised contact with children or access to the internet during his bail hearing on Dec. 16, where his bail was set for $100,000. Dorway remained in jail until Saturday when he posted his bond.
