PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia School District Superintendent William Hite has released this year’s version of his blueprint to improve city schools.

Hite says his Action Plan 2.0 has four goals: Graduating all students college-ready, having all 8-year-olds reading on grade level, having great principals and teachers at all schools and having 100-percent of the funding it needs.

Those are lofty goals, considering the deep staff cuts made during school year’s budget crisis. But Hite says it’s about providing services to children, not simply refilling jobs.

“This is not about returning to the structure, the systems, the processes, the staffing patterns that we’ve had in the past,” Hite says. “Because we want to improve on those outcomes as well.”

Hite hasn’t put a price tag on his new plan yet. He was expected to outline that later in the week.
