School superintendant Roosevelt resigns

After five years as superintendent of the Pittsburgh Public School District, Mark Roosevelt has announced he will be resigning. “I stand before you all a very grateful person. I am confident leaving,” Roosevelt said. “I think I’m someone who sees possibilities and makes a turn around come to life and that’s why I think my work is done in Pittsburgh.” At a press conference on Oct. 6 Roosevelt said he is the finalist for a position as president of Antioch College in Ohio. Whether or not he is offered the position, he said he intends to leave his current position on Dec. 31 of this year. MARK ROOSEVELT
