Cincinnati Public Schools superintendent Laura Mitchell steps down

Catherine Laura Mitchell is unanimously approved as superintendent of Cincinnati Public Schools Tuesday, May 9, 2017 at the school board offices in Corryville. Mitchell had served as the deputy superintendent since 2005.

Cincinnati Public Schools superintendent Catherine Laura Mitchell announced she is leaving the district during a Monday night board of education meeting.

Mitchell did not specify where she is headed next, but said she is resigning "to embrace an opportunity that aligns with what I feel is an awakened calling in this season of my life."

A news release from the district says Mitchell is leaving "to pursue an unexpected professional opportunity."

It was "not an easy decision," Mitchell said, after spending 27 years in the district.

"I have literally spent an entire lifetime in this district," Mitchell said at the board meeting. "So while not my final destination, as (you) continue on this journey for Cincinnati Public Schools, please know that I will always call and consider Cincinnati Public Schools my home and my district."

Mitchell's last day as superintendent will be June 11, she said. 

"While we respect your decision to keep your new opportunity private for now, we anticipate our paths crossing again," school board president Carolyn Jones said.
