Arlene Ackerman: Out
  by: Rebel - Havertown, PA

Arlene Ackerman is out as Philly superintendent.
Her departure has been confirmed by the Philadelphia School District.

Acting Superintendent Leroy D. Nunery II said his immediate focus is very short term - on hiring teachers, preparing buildings and organizing buses to open schools successfully on Sept. 6.

On Thursday, Arlene Ackerman publicly challenged her bosses to release her at the annual principals' convocation.

She will be paid $905,000 to walk away - $405,000 of that coming from anonymous private donations.
Acting Superintendent Leroy D. Nunery II said :

"This has been a difficult time. … My goal is to do as much outreach to all our respective communities – and I do mean all,”

“We need resources and we need friends - two key words.”

Nunery said he wants the superintendent's job long-term.

Arlene Ackerman's attorney characterizes the negotiations over her departure as "amicable" and confirmed that the superintendent gave up money for the final year of her contract to go straight to the district's Promise Academies, or overhauled schools. They were her signature initiative.

The move was "the best thing for everyone," said Robert Nix. "She's just giving back that last year and saying, 'earmark it for the Promise Academies.'"

"She essentially gets everything coming to her under her contract," said Nix, the attorney.
