Harvey Quits

St. Paul School's chief administrator, Patricia Harvey, has resigned her position effective December 31 of this year. This after Denver announced their choice for the appointment Harvey was pursuing. That appointment went to another candidate.
St. Paul schools Superintendent Patricia Harvey did not win the job to head the Denver schools.

On Monday, she also decided she will no longer lead the St. Paul Public Schools.

Harvey will resign her job, effective Dec. 31, she announced to board members, administrators and other staff members Monday.

It was a decision she said she made last week when considering her future if she did not get the Denver job. That became reality Monday morning, when the Denver School Board named Michael Bennet, chief of staff to Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, as its next superintendent. Harvey had been one of three finalists for the post and was considered to be in a neck-and-neck competition with Bennet, according to multiple sources in Denver.

Harvey said the whole process of pursuing the Denver job convinced her that, "although I love St. Paul greatly," she wants greater challenges in her career.
