A veteran D.C.-area schools administrator has been selected to serve as Alexandria's interim superintendent.

Alvin Crawley, who most recently was the interim superintendent in Prince George's County, Md., will begin his appointment Monday and will serve while the city searches for a permanent replacement.

The city school board bought out the contract of previous superintendent Morton Sherman in August amid conflicts between Sherman and the school board.

Sherman was the second consecutive superintendent whose contract was bought out by Alexandria. Rebecca Perry departed as superintendent in 2008 in the wake of an extended controversy over a drunken driving arrest.

Crawley spent most of his career in Arlington. He left Prince George's County as control of the system shifted from the county board of education to the county executive.
