DeLand High School

DeLand, FL-A teacher/volleyball coach at DeLand High School has been removed from the job for allegations of inappropriate behavior.

The Volusia County School Board removed Steven Foxworth, a 29-year-old social studies teacher at DeLand High School, amid allegations that he sent inappropriate messages to a student. Foxworth, who is also a volleyball coach, is accused of sending personal Twitter messages to a ninth-grade player.

The messages were not sent during school hours. They did, however, center around the student’s physical appearance. Foxworth’s attorney said his client was trying to help the student with self-esteem issues.

The recommendation for dismissal goes before a school board meeting June 14. Foxworth has spent three seasons as DeLand’s volleyball coach. He has until May 23 to contest the charges.
