Prince George’s Co. searches for new schools chief

UPPER MARLBORO — The Prince George’s County school board is beginning its search for a new superintendent as the school system contends with a void in leadership following Superintendent William Hite’s departure.

A consulting company hired to identify and screen candidates has met with community stakeholders to discuss the type of superintendent they want.

The Washington Post reports the company is set to present its findings to the board Dec. 13 at a public meeting. A list of candidates is to be announced and interviewed in the spring. Then the board is expected to name a new schools chief by July.

Since Hite’s departure, the chief personnel, legal and financial officers also left.

The school board hired Alvin Crawley, a D.C. Public Schools official, as interim chief, along with other interim leaders.
