According to the Reno Gazette-Journal, Pedro Martinez has accepted the superintendent job in Washoe County, Nevada.  He was one of two finalists for the Philly superintendent's job.

Stay tuned.  No word from the School Reform Commission yet.  After a brief meeting on other matters today, search committee chair Wendell Pritchett and SRC chairman Pedro Ramos said they were still talking. 

District spokesman Fernando Gallard said this afternoon that "our process is still ongoing."
