Verletta White

Interim Superintendent, Baltimore County Public Schools

Dynamic, deeply trusted, and homegrown, Baltimore County Public Schools Interim Superintendent Ms. Verletta White describes herself first as a teacher dedicated to disciplinary literacy in every subject area and positive, safe, and healthy school climates in order to prepare every student for college and career success. Ms. White leads the 25th largest school system in the nation, with a growing student enrollment of more than 114,000 diverse students, and more than 18,500 employees including 9,000 teachers. 

As both instructional leader and lead learner, Ms. White has led change in almost every aspect of the school system, resulting in increased graduation rates and the elimination of the black-white graduation gap. Known for actively seeking stakeholder input, Ms. White ensures that what is best for students is at the core of all decisions. Her focus is highly engaging instruction that is responsive to individual student needs in every classroom, every day, by meeting the needs of the whole child and supporting teachers with effective professional learning opportunities.

Previously, Ms. White served as chief academic officer for BCPS, the instructional leader responsible for defining and communicating the vision of the school system while motivating a division of more than 500 curriculum and student support staff. In support of increased student achievement, Ms. White also directly oversaw the work of four community superintendents to align school instructional programs and student services. As an earnest communicator, Ms. White has always reached out to students, parent advocacy groups, employee associations, community organizations, and elected officials from the local and state levels to listen and to learn.

Ms. White has risen through the ranks of BCPS superintendent’s senior and executive staffs since 2007, in the capacities of executive director of professional development; area assistant superintendent for the Northeast Area; and assistant superintendent for elementary schools. Her first central office position was coordinator of leadership development, where she utilized her classroom teaching and mentoring experiences to foster the professional growth of teachers and administrators on a system level. She served as principal, assistant principal, and teacher mentor in BCPS. Ms. White began her teaching career in 1992, as an elementary school teacher in Baltimore City, and transitioned to a teaching position in Baltimore County in 1995.

Ms. White served as an adjunct professor in school improvement leadership for Goucher College in 2013, and is a state and national presenter on topics such as professional development, the transformation of teaching and learning, and leading through change in a digital era.

Ms. White holds a bachelor of science degree in education from Towson University, a master of arts degree in leadership in teaching from the College of Notre Dame in Maryland, and is currently a doctoral candidate in urban educational leadership at Morgan State University.

Ms. White and her husband are the proud parents of two children, a BCPS graduate and a current BCPS student.
