Cleveland Schools CEO Eric Gordon holds his final State of Schools address

The speech came nearly a week after Gordon announced his plans to resign following the school year.

CLEVELAND — Nearly one week after announcing his plans to resign following the current school year, Cleveland Metropolitan Schools District CEO Eric Gordon held his final State of the Schools address.

The address, which took place at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, can be viewed in its entirety in the YouTube player at the bottom of this story.

Earlier this month, Gordon announced his plans to resign from his position, which he has held since 2011. In a statement, Gordon said he wanted to provide the school board and Mayor Justin M. Bibb “with sufficient time to conduct a thorough, high-quality search for the next CEO.”

“While the decision to leave CMSD was not an easy one for me, the time and conditions are right for the Mayor and Board to identify a CEO to lead the District’s long-term recovery from the pandemic and to build on the gains we achieved during a remarkable and historic period in K-12 education,” Gordon added in a video message.

Speaking to 3News’ Christi Paul, Gordon said “This is the right time to make a change, but I don’t want to make this change. I just kept looking going ‘I can see it, but I don’t want it.'” He also reiterated that the decision to resign was his to make and nothing that was forced upon him.

“This was my decision,” he said. “I know there’s a lot of speculation about it. I made this decision. Nobody asked me to go, nobody told me to go.”
