Edward Colacion has officially stepped down from his position as principal at Hollywood High School.
Colacion sent out an email to staff at Hollywood at 7:24 on Wednesday night where he stated his gratitude for everyone working towards the needs of Hollywood. In the email, he addressed his “step[ping] down” from the position as being a result of placing his attention to his mother and family.
Until another principal is hired, Fonna Bishop will serve as Interim Principal for the rest of the 2018-2019 school year. Bishop served as principal in the years of 2002-2008 until she retired.
Some students and teachers are confused by how sudden this is.
Francisco Juarez, teacher, said “I just hope that his mother gets better and he is able to provide whatever that she needs.”
