BLOOMFIELD HILLS — Bloomfield Hills Schools Superintendent Rob Glass will leave his position next month.

“It is with mixed feelings that I share with you that I will be moving to New York at the end of this school year,” Glass said in a letter. “My wife recently accepted the position of vice president of human resources and labor relations for the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan. After making the difficult decision to relocate to New York, I was offered the position of superintendent with Eastchester Union Free School District.”

Glass has served as the superintendent of Bloomfield Hills Schools for nine years and in 2017 was named the Michigan Superintendent of the Year by the Michigan Association of Superintendents and Administrators.  

“This truly is a special place to live and learn,” Glass said. “The community of Bloomfield Hills Schools is one of the most encouraging and heartfelt I’ve ever experienced. From the dedicated family members of our students to our community business partners and local support agencies, the community truly lifts up and champions the district.”

“We are deeply saddened to see Dr. Glass leave Bloomfield Hills Schools,” Paul Kolin, Bloomfield Hills Schools Board of Education president, said in a statement. “He is truly a one-of-a-kind leader who leads with his heart first and foremost and has helped the district make tremendous advancements for the benefit of all learners.”

Next, the Bloomfield Hills Schools Board of Education will conduct a search for a new superintendent, Kolin said.   

“We have talented students, dedicated and collaborative staff, incredible resources, and a school community that places a strong emphasis on strong, caring relationships,” Kolin said. “I am sure we will find someone who will carry forward the work Dr. Glass and his team have done and have planned still to do.”

According to Bloomfield Hills Schools officials, updated information about the superintendent search will be posted at
