PGCPS Selects Firm to Help in Superintendent Search
The Prince George's County Public Schools has officially begun the process for hiring a new superintendent by selecting a firm to help with the search.
A Rosemont, IL firm was selected to help the county's public school system find its new leader.
The Prince George's County Board of Education (BOE) selected Hazard, Young, Attea & Associates (HYA) to help replace current superintendent William R. Hite, according to a release from the county's public schools. Hite resigned after he accepted a job as the new superintendent for the School District of Philadelphia.
HYA will help find and screen candidates interested in leading the Prince George's County Public Schools.
PGCPS worked with the executive search firm previously, the release stated, and the firm has worked with neighboring counties— Montgomery, Howard and Anne Arundel— with their searches.
The board released a request for quotes on July 16 and they were due by July 20, according to the PGCPS website.
According to the BOE, a new superintendent will not be selected until spring 2013.
