Hart helps to pick new Phila. School District CEO


The Philadelphia School District’s CEO Search Advisory Committee recommended Arlene Ackerman (above) as the next CEO of the Philadelphia School District, the Philadelphia Daily News reported today. The five-person School Reform Commission, Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter and PA Gov. Ed Rendell had a say in the final decision.

As the Temple News reported, Hart served along with 44 other local leaders on the advisory committee in the six month search for a new CEO.

Nutter called Ackerman, “the right person for Philadelphia’s schools at the right time,” at a press conference yesterday. Ackerman’s previous experience includes leading the San Francisco and Washington, D.C. school districts.
