Williston High School principal to resign

-A A +A

Gets new administrative post with Florida Virtual School

By Jim Clark

Williston High School will be getting a new principal.

Mike DeLucas confirmed Wednesday that he has resigned, effective the end of the year.

DeLucas will become instructional leader for the Florida Virtual School, which means he is the virtual principal of 110,000 students in the state.

The Florida Virtual School enables students to take courses online for various reasons. One common reason is that their school does not offer the course they wish to take.

DeLucas said the process was a long one and involved a lot of interviews. He emphasized it had nothing to do with the recent school superintendent elections.

“I spend a lot of evenings away from home,” he said. “My kids are 12, 9 and 3. I want to be a better father, better husband.”

He added that “it’s been a blessing to work here.”

He won’t be traveling far in his new job, at least not physically. “I’ll be based out of my home.”

It will be up to Superintendent Bob Hastings to appoint a new principal. Hastings was not available for comment Wednesday afternoon.
