Prince George's County has hired a D.C. Public Schools senior administrator to be its superintendent for the school year beginning Monday, county officials announced Friday.
Alvin Crawley is currently the deputy chief of programming in the DCPS Office of Special Education. He will officially begin his role as the interim superintendent Sept. 4.
The Maryland school district is searching for a permanent replacement for William Hite, who is leaving Prince George's to be superintendent in Philadelphia.
"I am excited to lead Prince George's County Public Schools at this critical time," Crawley said. "The school system has made significant academic strides in recent years and I look forward to helping students and teachers continue on that path. I will work with the Board of Education over the next few weeks to address immediate challenges and enhance successful programs and services."
