Two high-ranking Palm Beach County school officials whose criminal charges were dropped in a high-profile case will soon be back in schools.

According to Palm Beach County School Board documents, Darren Edgecomb, the former principal at Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington, and Daniel Snider, the school’s former assistant principal, are set to move into new school-based positions.

With the school board’s approval at its Wednesday night meeting, Edgecomb will become the principal of charter schools starting on July 1, and Snider will become the assistant principal at Royal Palm Beach Community High School.
