Scot Beckerman is resigning his position as principal of effective June 30.
The Board of Education will vote on accepting his resignation at a meeting Thursday. Beckerman confirmed the decision Wednesday afternoon.
“Ultimately, my wife and I decided it would be in the best interests of our family to make a move now,” Beckerman said. “I’m very happy with the school and the time that I’ve spent here.”
Beckerman declined further comment.
Beckerman became principal of Wayne Hills in 2009.
Beckerman said that his decision to leave has nothing to do with the school’s football team last year.
“Singular items like that did not factor into the decision,” Beckerman said. “I wish the district nothing but good things for the future.”
Superintendent of Schools Ray Gonzalez said that he will "reserve comment and discussion about agenda items for the actual meeting."
