Baltimore County school day lengthened by 5 minutes

DUNDALK, Md. — School is back in session across the area, and it’s also the first day for Baltimore County's new superintendent.

Dr. Darryl Williams will be visiting several schools in one of the area’s largest school district, including the newly re-built Dundalk Elementary School.

Students will be walking into a brand new, nearly $47-million elementary school Tuesday morning. The county broke ground on the building in May of last year. It will increase the school's capacity from 703 to 735 students.

Dr. Williams visited students there and stopped at several schools around the county.

This begins his first year as superintendent of public schools in Baltimore County. He was appointed in May and replaced the interim superintendent Verletta White.

Dr. Williams came from Montgomery County where he served as an associate superintendent for kindergarten through eighth grade.

The superintendent will also visit Eastern Technical High, Woodlawn Middle, Randallstown High and Ridgely Middle schools.
