Somerset Hills Regional School District Superintendent Peter Miller says Patrick Lott’s resignation was accepted Thursday during a special board of education meeting.

The 54-year-old Lott was an assistant principal at the Bernardsville Middle School. But he had been placed on an unpaid leave of absence after being arrested last December.

His resignation took effect on Jan. 27.

Somerset County prosecutors say Lott videotaped students in a communal shower area at Immaculata High School in Somerville, starting in January 2008. Authorities say there were 22 victims, including nine boys who are under the age of 16.

Lott remains jailed on $500,000 bail.
