"A quick look at your weather overnight into the morning, clear cold down to below freezing at twenty three degrees. So let that faucet inside your home, drip, just a little bit overnight. So those pipes in your home. Freeze up. This is reporter's roundup weekend edition. It is called PSP the organization along with the bear. With a new effort that spells good news for students and city schools were told covering this story and with us. Mike DeNardo might be exactly. What was announced? Well, Steve PSP is the Philadelphia school partnership. That is an influential nonprofit that gives millions to charter district in Catholic schools in the city, and what was announced what's the launch of a website teach ph L dot ORG, where potential teachers can go to find jobs right now. There are about one hundred fifty jobs listed on that website. Not just in Philadelphia school district schools, but in charters independence, mission Catholic, schools and private schools. And you might think that if you were the Philadelphia school district, you might be concerned that potential teachers would see a variety of jobs right next to district jobs, and it could siphon off teachers, but we talked with superintendent William Hite about that. And he believes the website will raise the water level for all boats in the ocean. If he will thinks it'll mean more quality applicants for everyone. Who does sound like good news? How exactly did this come about? Well, they came about because teaching in Philadelphia is tough. And there's quite a turnover in district schools eight out of ten new teachers will stay on for the next year. So that nonprofit ESP invested around fifty thousand dollars to develop the website. It looked too similar recruiting sites in Memphis and Oakland. It includes not only a listing of jobs, but places where teachers can can get training what they call professional development as well. As certification."
