Ann Arbor Public Schools Superintendent Patricia Green retiring

Ann Arbor Public Schools' Superintendent has resigned.  

Patricia Green has been on the job in Ann Arbor since 2011.

In her letter of resignation, Green cited her 43 years in education.  Green’s resignation becomes effective in three months.  

The Ann Arbor Board of Education president praised Green’s service to the community as well as her advocacy for public education.

Ann Arbor is one of the largest public school districts in Michigan.  Green’s departure is the second this year by a top district administrator.   Deputy Superintendent Robert Allen left the district last month to take a job in North Carolina.

The departures come as the Ann Arbor school district grapples with a projected multi-million dollar budget shortfall next year.
