ISSUE:

The Anne Arundel County school board announced last week the selection of Kevin Maxwell, a Montgomery County administrator, as the school system's new superintendent.

Maxwell, 54, lives in Bowie and his twin daughters graduated from Arundel High School, points that gave him an edge over two out-of-state finalists.

Maxwell spent 22 years as a teacher, principal and administrator in Prince George's County before becoming principal at Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda. In 2004, he began his current job as one of six community superintendents in Montgomery County, where he oversees about 27,000 students in 39 schools.

Nancy M. Mann has served as interim superintendent since Eric J. Smith resigned.
