William Latson, fired again.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — The Palm Bach County School Board officially terminated former Spanish River High School Principal William Latson mid-day Tuesday. Latson created an international uproar when he told a parent that it wasn’t for him to say whether the Holocaust happened or not. He was fired in 2019. Over the year that followed, Latson sued the Palm Beach County School District which ultimately decided to rehire him at the advice of an administrative law judge, only to fire him again earlier this month.

The School Board today upheld the firing and executed the document which you can read, in its entirety, below.

When rehired, Latson was expected to be assigned to a “back office” job and retain his approximately $160,000 annual salary.
