Baltimore Co. School Board to vote on giving interim superintendent another term

After a whirlwind couple of weeks, the Baltimore County School Board could decide the future of their interim superintendent, Verletta White, Tuesday night.

After being approved by the board, Verletta White was denied becoming the permanent superintendent of Baltimore County Schools by the State Superintendent over ethical concerns.

So the board now has two options, one is to give doctor Verletta White another term as the interim superintendent, or they could appoint someone else based on the recommendation of Dr. Karen Salmon, the State Superintendent.

Dr. Salmon sent out a letter outlining her reasons for declining to approve White as the permanent superintendent. Salmon said she was concerned about the findings of an ethics review panel on White which reported that she failed to disclose outside income she earned through consulting work.

Salmon said she would approve White again as the interim head of schools while Baltimore County conducted an audit of their process in filling positions like the superintendent. White said she was disappointed with the decision, but it has not ended her desire to become the permanent head of the school district.

She's been working with the school district since July of 2016. Tuesday's school board meeting starts at 5 p.m.
