BCPS officials say White will be employed with the school system as a consultant to the superintendent for the 2019-2020 school year. The Board has also agreed to allow White to spend the next year focusing on the recruitment and retention of teachers, especially those in high-need areas, such as special education, mathematics, science, and ESOL.

“Teachers are the lifeblood of any school system,” White said. “Recruiting and retaining high-quality teachers is essential for the academic success of students. My plan is to examine the school system’s current recruitment/retention strategy and propose changes that I hope will serve as a win-win for the organization and for our students.”

White will serve as a consultant to the superintendent from July 1, 2019 until June 30, 2020.
