School district hires a 90G director of recruitment

Kendra-Lee Rosati started work Tuesday.

THE FINANCIALLY strapped Philadelphia School District has hired a director of recruitment.

Kendra-Lee Rosati began her position Tuesday and will earn a $90,000 annual salary, district sources told the Daily News.

District spokesman Fernando Gallard did not respond to a Daily News query about whether the position was newly created.

Rosati earlier this month left a job in Oklahoma with Teach for America, where her title was managing director of talent strategy and people experience, according to her Facebook page.

She worked with KIPP Philadelphia Schools as director of growth strategy from September 2012 until last July.

Rosati, who attended Syracuse University and received a master's degree in education from the University of Pennsylvania, worked with the school district from 2006 to 2008, according to her Facebook page.

The School Reform Commission has not ruled on Rosati's hiring.

The district has a history of hiring employees without SRC approval. A Daily News investigation last fall found that about 1,000 district hires had not been approved by the SRC.

The Office of General Counsel launched an internal review and found that a computer glitch prevented a number of employees from being included in personnel resolutions presented to the SRC. Nearly 10,000 employees hired between July 2008 and September 2013 were approved by the SRC earlier this year.
