UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- Prince George's County interim schools superintendent will stay on until schools open in the fall.
School Board Chairman Verjeana Jacobs tells the Washington Post (http://wapo.st/16WjQ53 ) that Alvin Crawley has agreed to stay until August.
Crawley announced his resignation after County Executive Rushern Baker's school system takeover and planned to leave June 3. But Baker announced this week that he would ask Crawley to stay until a new leader is in place.
Crawley has served as interim superintendent since September, when William Hite Jr. left to take the top job in Philadelphia.
The county is transitioning to a new governance structure to select its schools leader. Under the new process, Baker will select the superintendent based on recommendations from a three-member search committee appointed by Gov. Martin O'Malley.
