Providence Superintendent of Schools Susan Lusi has announced she will not return for another school year.
The announcement comes with only about two months left in the current school year. Superintendent Lusi declined to be interviewed for this story, but in a press release, says she wants to pursue other professional opportunities.
After four years leading Providence schools, Lusi touts improvements in the high school graduation rate and reading scores.
Providence Mayor Jorge Elorza says the school board will begin an immediate search for her successor.
