PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - One of Superintendent Arlene Ackerman’s chief deputies is taking a new job in the Big Apple.

When she was superintendent in San Francisco, Arlene Ackerman hired David Weiner as one of the youngest principals there. Three years ago, Weiner joined Ackerman’s administration in Philadelphia as the chief academic officer.

Now, he’s taking a job as a deputy chancellor in the New York City public schools. Weiner says one regret is that he’s leaving the turnaround plan for Philadelphia’s worst performing schools.

“I’m a little disappointed that I’m only going to be able to see the first year of our first round of Promise Academies. But I’m excited to see how the data comes out in the next couple of years because I think this is really a nationwide effort to turn around some of the lowest performing schools, and we’re making that effort right here in Philly.”

Weiner returns to New York City, where he once worked as a principal.
