New York City Schools Chancellor Dennis Walcott announced that he was assembling a transition for the next mayor. Walcott said the team is preparing a document with their top issues and initiatives. According to WNYC, Walcott will not remain in his position when a new mayor takes office next year:
"Walcott made clear that his last day will be December 31. That's a departure from 2002, after Mayor Michael Bloomberg took office. Former Chancellor Harold Levy stayed until Bloomberg selected Joel Klein as chancellor that summer."
