OAKLAND (CBS SF) — Oakland’s school Superintendent Tony Smith announced Friday he will leave the job in June, two years before the end of his contract.
His last day is June 30.
Smith said he is moving to Chicago to be closer to his wife’s parents.
“The decision to leave at this time is very difficult,” he wrote in the letter to OUSD board of education president David Kakishiba. “However, my commitment to my family first means this is the right decision at this time.”
