The Waupaca School Board accepted the resignation of Rob Becker, the Waupaca High School principal, Tuesday.
According to District Administrator Greg Nyen, Becker’s resignation will not be effective immediately so as to allow him to serve as a resource during the transition.
“We know that staff, students and community members may have questions about this decision,” Neyn said. “The board and the administration hope to have more information available to share soon concerning the leadership at the high school.”
Nyen placed Becker on non-disciplinary, paid administrative leave on Feb. 8.
Scott Van Ess was named the interim high school principal.
Van Ess has been the high school’s dean of students since August 2015.
Previously, he was a teacher, then the Positive Behavioral Intervention and Supports coach at Waupaca Learning Center.
