THE PHILADELPHIA School District wants Arlene Ackerman's replacement to act "more as the 'head coach' rather than the 'star.' "
The district released a five-page job description yesterday for the open superintendent job. It hopes to hear from applicants by May 15 and have a new superintendent in place by next school year.
"The next Superintendent/CEO should have experience building and leading successful teams in a large, complex and diverse organization," according to the job posting.
