Baltimore County Board of Education reaches deal with interim superintendent

Posted at 11:47 AM, Nov 24, 2017

An agreement has been reached between the Baltimore County Board of Education and Interim Superintendent Verletta White regarding her financial disclosure forms.

As part of the deal, White will only accept compensation from Baltimore County Public Schools and will not go on out-of-state travel without approval of the full board. Both the board and White will also ask the Ethics Panel to revise the financial disclosure form to remove ambiguities within it and the directions for the form.

"The Board unanimously agreed the parameters," said Board Chairman Edward Gilliss. "Ms. White understands the issues identified regarding the current financial disclosure form, and the Board and Interim Superintendent agree to the recommended revisions. Ms. White is an engaging educational leader, and we are now focused on moving forward."

"My completion of the financial disclosure form was an honest oversight and mistake on my part," said White. "Now, we must focus on collaborating with our entire school system staff to provide the best education possible for our more than 113,000 students."

White became interim superintendent last July. She will serve in that role until June 20, 2018.
