Incoming Superintendent William Hite is set to begin working in Philadelphia "a couple days a week," but there's still no official word on when he will assume the troubled School District's top job on a full-time basis.
Hite "will be in Philadelphia starting the end of this week working on the transition," School Reform Commission Chairman Pedro Ramos said Wednesday.
"We expect to have something to say in the next week or so about his start date and details of an agreement with him."
Hite is currently the superintendent of Prince George's County, Md., Public Schools, where his contract has a 120-day notice provision.
