Prince George's County has named a District of Columbia educator as its interim schools chief. Alvin Crawley, the deputy chief of programming for D.C. Public Schools' special education office, will take over September 4. He replaces Superintendent William Hite, who stepped down to lead the Philadelphia school system. 

The county school board expects to select a permanent replacement by next spring. School board Chairman Verjeana Jacobs said in a statement that Crawley will provide stability as the board searches for a new superintendent.

Crawley, who has never led a school district, takes over a 123,000-student system that has also lost its deputy superintendent and several senior administrators in the past two months.
