The athletic director for the West Seneca School District is leaving at the end of the school year.

The School Board voted Monday night to accept the resignation of James R. Higgins Jr., who had been appointed director of physical education and athletics in January 2011. He came to West Seneca from the Orchard Park School District, where he held the same job.

“We are going to move ahead; a replacement position will be posted today,” School Superintendent Mark J. Crawford said this morning.
