Chicago Public Schools CEO Ron Huberman officially tendered his resignation to Mayor Richard M. Daley and Chicago Board of Education President Mary Richardson-Lowry, effective November 29, 2010.
“Ron Huberman has shown great leadership throughout his 16-year career in city government, and we thank him for his service,” said Mayor Daley.
Huberman started his career in city government as a Chicago Police Officer and has led four departments including the Office of Emergency Management and Communications, Mayor’s Office, Chicago Transit Authority and Chicago Public Schools.
Huberman, 38, has privately expressed his interest not to serve another administration and said he wants to spend more time with his family before beginning a new career endeavor.
“I will always be grateful for the opportunity to have served this city and Mayor Daley as its leader. I have been privileged to work with so many talented people who have tirelessly made this city a better place to work and call home,” Huberman said.
Chicago Public Schools serves 417,855 students in 675 schools. It is the nation’s third-largest school district.
