The School Reform Commission (SRC) governs the School District of Philadelphia (SDP). It was established in December 2001, when oversight of the School District shifted to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The SRC functions primarily as the school board with the responsibility to:

Govern over all public schools, District-managed and Charter Schools, in Philadelphia.
Oversee all major policy and budgetary decisions for the School District.
Appoint and evaluate the Superintendent of Schools.

The SRC is made up of five volunteer members. The Governor’s appointees serve terms that last 5 years and the Mayor’s appointees serve terms that last 4 years.
