    The school bell is ringing one last time for Chicago Public Schools chief Ron Huberman.

    Huberman's resignation takes effect Monday, Nov. 29th.

    He announced in early November he planned to resign from his $230,000 a year position.

    The 38-year-old expressed no interest in serving under another mayor after the retirement of Richard Daley next year, according to a CPS press release.

    "I will always be grateful for the opportunity to served this city and Mayor Daley as its leader," said Huberman. 

    He is leaving city government after a 16-year career, which he started as a Chicago Police officer. He led the CTA, the Office of Emergency Management and Mayor's Office.

    Huberman's exploring a new career, said the release.
