The Prince George’s County school system is facing a search for a new superintendent after schools chief William Hite announced he is leaving for Philadelphia.
Hite’s announcement came just after Deputy Superintendent Bonita Colman-Potter announced she is leaving to take a job in Mississippi.
The school board has said an interim superintendent will be named within weeks. The board also plans to announce a process for selecting Hite’s permanent successor.
School board Chair Verjeana Jacobs tells The Washington Post the board will work to ensure a smooth transition.
