By December, Pittsburgh Superintendent of Schools Anthony Hamlet expects to have completed a top-to-bottom evaluation of the district, assembled a transition team of national experts who will assist in that analysis, and met with administrators, staff, students, parents and community stakeholders at all 54 of the district’s schools.

Those are the three main components of the 90-day plan he presented to the board and the public Aug. 9 that will serve as the basis for a comprehensive plan to lead the district forward.

“This 90-day plan is a necessary first step to develop a five-year strategic plan with transparency, two-way communication, defined, strategic goals and a clear vision to make the district one of the best in the nation,” he said.

The Council of the Great City Schools, a national consortium of large urban school districts, will help find national experts for the superintendent’s transition team and complete an independent evaluation of the district covering everything from staffing, instruction, budgets and discipline to class sizes, curriculum and social services.
