September 14, 2023 - Superintendent's Update

Hello AAPS Community, 

It has been my tremendous honor to serve as Superintendent of Schools in the Ann Arbor Public Schools over these previous ten years.

I am deeply grateful for the close support and partnership of this AAPS team and school community, the many experiences we have shared, and am proud of the accomplishments we have achieved in our work together to support our students and staff, families, schools and community. I will always treasure the special relationships with so many across this Ann Arbor Public Schools community. 

Today, I am sharing that I will resign from the Ann Arbor Public Schools. We all share the goal of working together to achieve a smooth and orderly leadership transition, keeping the support of our staff and the critical mission of serving our students as our primary focus. 

I will work diligently to support our students and staff, our families, schools and community, and the Board of Education through a successful transition process and in support of an incoming leader so that the significant work in progress may continue to move forward in the AAPS.

As always, we will remain focused on our students, our work together to ensure a strong 2023-2024 school year, and continuing quality educational experiences for our students and their families.  

We know that our AAPS team and community will continue the extraordinary work that defines the excellence of these Ann Arbor Public Schools, past, present and future.
