OPS Superintendent To Resign

In a news release that came out Tuesday morning, the Omaha Public Schools Superintendent announced her resignation.

Dr. Cheryl Logan says she has notified the Board of Education she will step down at the end of this school year.

Her statement:

Dear Omaha Public Schools Community,

It has been a joy to serve as your Superintendent. The leadership Omaha Public Schools has exemplified at the national and state leadership level amongst large, urban school districts across the nation is something we should all be proud of. We have a caring, committed staff and we serve the best students.

With deep gratitude for the time we’ve spent together, I notified our Board of Education that this will be my final school year with our school district. I will step away from my position at the end of June 2023. I am forever grateful for and honored by the friendships and partnerships we’ve built together. Alas, it is time for me to return home to my family. It is time for me to have tea with my sisters on Saturdays, to watch my nephew play soccer and to spend quality time with my husband and daughter, located close to my native home and both of our families. 

From the time the Board of Education offered me this opportunity in 2018, we have accomplished much through our Strategic Plan of Action. We’ve elevated learning through hard work, new materials and expanded programs. With the support of the voters, we’ve built five new schools on-time and on-budget and renovated several more. We have positioned the long-term financial health of our school district to ensure we can deliver a quality education for all children. We’ve navigated three school years amid global pandemic disruptions.

It takes everyone – staff, families and our community—to make our system “go.” We have important work ahead in the second semester of our 2022-2023 school year. Even through challenging times, our service to our students, families, community and our investment in the future generation remains at the center of our work. 

Thank you for supporting me along the journey of meeting the challenges and opportunities that have come our way as we worked diligently to support our 52,000 students. I look forward to a strong finish.

Cordially yours,

Cheryl J. Logan, Ed.D., Superintendent

Logan came to the Omaha district in 2018 from the School District of Philadelphia.
