The Baltimore County school board voted last week to keep its interim superintendent on a permanent basis, despite ethical lapses.

During the nine months that Verletta White served as interim superintendent, the board's ethics panel determined she had previously violated ethics rules as a schools employee. White was chosen despite the violation and concerns she was linked to ex-superintendent Dallas Dance, who was to be sentenced late last week on perjury charges.

Several board members had wanted White to stay on as interim superintendent of the 80,500-student district while a national search was launched.

White is taking over the reins of the school system that educated her and where she taught and served as a principal and in other administrative jobs before being named assistant superintendent in 2009.
