The school board is scheduled next week to approve a five-year contract for Walters.

Walters was appointed interim superintendent after Anthony Hamlet resigned amid fallout from a state ethics investigation. 

He was the first principal of Barack Obama Academy of International Studies in Pittsburgh in 2009; in 2014, he became an assistant superintendent.

Pittsburgh, the second largest school district in Pennsylvania, has about 25,000 students.
