The Roane County Board of Education voted 6-4 to extend Director of Schools Toni McGriff's contract for one-year.
"I moved to the place where I did want to stay another year,” McGriff said following Tuesday night's special-called meeting. “I hoped that I had done a good enough job that the board would want me to return.”
McGriff's contract was set to expire on June 30. The one-year extension will keep McGriff in charge of the school system until June 30, 2012.
