Board votes for interim Osceola Co. school superintendent

Updated:

OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. - The Osceola County school board now has a new interim school superintendent.

During an emergency meeting Monday night, the board voted to name Melba Luciano as a temporary replacement to Terry Andrews.

Andrews announced his resignation last month after some board members called for his firing.

WFTV spoke to some parents who attended Monday’s meeting and many said they want strong leadership and less drama.

“It's not about the five personalities on this board. It's about the 54,000 students in Osceola County,” said parent Jennifer Palmer.

Luciano will serve as superintendent for six months until the board can decide on a permanent replacement.
