Hi Jenni, There is a forum on Aug 30 at Northwestern. People need to know that the Board selected the search company on 8/10 and selected Dr. Crawley on 8/17 (see Board Minutes @ pgcps.org). It makes me wonder how many applicants were actually interviewed, at least twice. Secondly, people need to ask why did Crawley leave DCPS after 4 months, and why he resigned suddently after allegations that he used APS student data to help his partner Mark Levine to advance research about children with Autism. He needs not bring shame to PG County.
