An elite pri­vate school in Owings Mills has fired the head of its mid­dle school af­ter find­ing in­ap­pro­pri­ate be­hav­ior that vi­o­lated the school’s code of con­duct for per­son­nel. McDonogh School of­fi­cials no­ti­fied par­ents late last week that mid­dle school head Dar­ren Ford had been let go af­ter the school learned of an in­ci­dent where his be­hav­ior to­ward an­other em­ployee had been in­ap­pro­pri­ate. “It is very im­por­tant to us to main­tain a cul­ture in which ev­ery mem­ber of our fac­ulty and staff feels val­ued and re­spected,” said David J. Farace, the head of the en­tire school. As­so­ciate Head of School Kate Mueller will take over as in­terim un­til a re­place­ment can be hired. The school said a na­tional search will be con­ducted to re­place Ford. The school de­clined to give any fur­ther de­tails about Ford’s be­hav­ior.
