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.

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.

Considering the turnover rate (voluntarily or involuntary) of this position one would expect a little anticipation and better planning for finding replacements. An entire county school system without a formal leader for a whole year doesn't speak well of the BOE.
