On June 16, 2022, Dr. Tony Watlington became the new superintendent of the School District of Philadelphia (SDP) and started his tenure by outlining a three-phase plan that would facilitate his transition into the role. Phase 1 of the plan covered his first 100 days as SDP superintendent and was focused on conducting a “Listening and Learning Tour” across Philadelphia. As part of this effort, Dr. Watlington held 90 listening sessions with a variety of stakeholders across the city and solicited feedback from all stakeholders via an open-ended survey posted on SDP’s website. The Office of Evaluation, Research, and Accountability (ERA) analyzed the data and published a condensed summary on our Listening & Learning webpage.
