PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - The city and state are pitching in to give the Philadelphia School District some executive help until a permanent superintendent is found.

The help comes in two forms: the mayor’s chief education officer, Lori Shorr, and former district chief academic officer, Ed Williams, will each serve as executive advisers to acting superintendent Lee Nunery during the search for a permanent superintendent.

“This is a first step of many steps of restoring the confidence and stability of the leadership of the district,” Pennsylvania education secretary Ron Tomalis says.

The second form is a Financial Working Group to advise the district on financial systems and business operations.

“Sometimes people who are not closest to it can offer kind of an objective advice on – these are the things I would consider,” Penn executive VP Craig Carnaroli says.

Mayor Nutter says the working group will consist of five to nine people.
