The firings of two high-ranking administrators last Thursday has left Prince George’s County Public Schools officials scrambling once again to fill key leadership positions.

Chief Financial Officer Matthew Stanski and Roger Thomas, general counsel for the school system, were dismissed after they mishandled the severance pay for former human resources director Synthia Shilling, who resigned in August.

“The Board (of Education) is taking this matter very seriously. Any abuse in complying with the Board’s directives, policies and procedures will not be tolerated,” school board spokesman Briant Coleman said in a press statement.

The upset comes on the heels of Alvin Crawley’s interim appointment to lead Maryland’s second-largest school system. Since he took office to replace William Hite on Sept. 4, The Washington Post reported, Crawley has taken on additional responsibilities to fill the void.

In recent months, Prince George’s County Public Schools has seen the departure of five executive officials including superintendent and deputy superintendent.
