Pittsburgh public schools are looking for public input in the search for the superintendent

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – For several months, the Pittsburgh Public Schools Council has been searching nationally for a new headmaster.

They say they are looking for the contribution of society in this important decision for the district.

Five meetings with families will be held in Pittsburgh this week to take part in the search. There are three on Wednesday night and two on Thursday night, as well as a virtual meeting.

That was back in October 2021, when former superintendent Dr. Anthony Hamlin resigned after the Pennsylvania Ethics Commission found he had violated the State Ethics Act.

KDKA reported in detail on this, including its travel expenses, receiving cash for performances, and more. Following Dr. Hamlin’s resignation, Dr. Wayne Walters served as temporary superintendent.

In addition to the meetings that are taking place, the community is also invited to take part in a survey as part of the search work. The deadline to complete is next Wednesday, May 18th.
