Baltimore County school board member wants vote on Dance contract delayed

The Baltimore County school board is scheduled to vote Tuesday on a new contract for Superintendent Dallas Dance, but one member is seeking a delay after an ethics complaint was filed Monday against Dance.
Miller said she wants the board to hold off on the vote because a former teacher filed a complaint against Dance on Monday with the school board's ethics panel.

The ethics complaint filed by William Groth, a county resident, alleges that Dance violated the terms of his contract by offering his availability for paid speaking engagements at educational conferences. Groth sent a screen shot of a speakers bureau website showing Dance and listing his availability and a $5,000 speaking fee.

"There is an increasing trend for more speaking engagements by the superintendent and other BCPS staff," the complaint states. "The more extensive his speaking engagement schedule becomes, the harder it is to justify a legitimate school system benefit."
