PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The start date for Philadelphia’s new schools superintendent Dr. William Hite could be announced in as early as a week.

Hite’s contract in his current job as superintendent in Prince George’s County, Maryland requires 120 days notice.

Philadelphia School Reform Commission Chairman Pedro Ramos says that’s still the subject of negotiation.  But in the meantime, he says Hite will be spending more time in town.

“On the official start date, we’re still working that out,” Ramos says. “But he will be here in Philadelphia, starting the end of this week, two days a week working on the transition.”

Ramos says Hite is expected to spend a few days a week in Philadelphia, throughout the summer.
