LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) – Prince George’s County Public Schools suffered heavy turnover following the unexpected departure of its former superintendent last summer, and now the search for his replacement may finally be coming to a close.
The Board of Education began interviewing candidates Friday, for whom the school system solicited through an online job listing on its website.
The search for a replacement dates back to last fall, a short time after Dr. William R. Hite left to take the same position within the Philadelphia school system.
According to the Washington Post, the school board has already sat down with as many as ten applicants.
Alvin Crawley, currently serving as the interim superintendent, has applied for the permanent role.
Since Hite’s departure, the school system has witnessed heavy turnover, after the positions of chief financial officer, general counsel and director of student services were also abandoned.
More than 30 candidates have applied to be the next superintendent.
