Embattled Detroit Public Schools Emergency Manager Darnell Earley is leaving his job Feb. 29, according to the governor’s office.
Gov. Rick Snyder will appoint a transition leader by the end of the month.
“Darnell has done a very good job under some very difficult circumstances. I want to thank him for his professionalism and his service to the people of Michigan,” Snyder said in a news release. “He restructured a heavily bureaucratic central office, set in place operating and cost-containment measures, and has taken steps to stabilize enrollment. These factors should all set the course for a sustainable, new Detroit Community Schools, as I have proposed.”
Earley was appointed DPS emergency manager in January 2015.
