UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) -- The interim superintendent of Prince George's County schools is stepping down following the county executive's school system takeover.
The county Board of Education says Alvin Crawley submitted his resignation Thursday. It is effective June 3.
The General Assembly approved legislation this month that allows County Executive Rushern Baker to appoint the schools superintendent. Crawley had already withdrawn his name from consideration for the permanent job.
Under the legislation, a three-person panel including the state superintendent will interview candidates for superintendent and submit three finalists to Baker. The county executive will then decide which person to hire.
County school board members say in a joint statement that they understand Crawley's decision to resign, given the circumstances.
The county's previous superintendent, William Hite, left to lead Philadelphia schools.
