Boston principal resigns amid more plagiarism allegations

A newly appointed Boston middle school principal who admitted to plagiarizing a Forbes magazine column in her first memo to staff submitted her resignation Wednesday after new allegations emerged that she had plagiarized portions of her job application materials.

Jaime Moody, principal of the Lilla G. Frederick Pilot Middle School in Dorchester, stepped down hours after the Globe contacted the School Department to inquire about a five-paragraph “executive summary” in her job application that was nearly identical to an educational philosophy statement that appeared on Oregon State University’s website, as part of an online education course developed in the 1990s.
