Superintendent Search Forum Tonight in Bowie
The Prince George's County Board of Education is hosting a public forum on the superintendent search process.
Bowie residents will have the opportunity to learn more and weigh in on the Prince George’s County Board of Education’s search for a new superintendent of schools in a public forum to be held Tuesday night at Bowie High.
Current Superintendent William R. Hite’s recent resignation after six years on the job has left the PGCPS top spot vacant. The school board hired a search firm earlier this month and is hosting a series of Moving Forward Forums to update principals, teachers and parents on the search process, according to a press release.
Hite tendered his resignation in July to accept a position as superintendent of the Philadelphia school system. Dr. Alvin Crawley, a 32-year education veteran from District of Columbia Public Schools, will be replacing Hite on an interim basis starting Sept. 4.
District 5, which includes Bowie and parts of Upper Marlboro, will be holding a Moving Forward Forum from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Tuesday at Bowie High. All parents, residents and educators are invited to attend.
