The Roane County Board of Education approved a contract for new Director of Schools Gary Aytes at last week’s meeting.
Aytes will take over for retiring director Toni McGriff on July 1.
His contract is only for two years. McGriff, by comparison, started with a four-year contract when she was hired in 2005.
The board does have the option to grant Aytes an extension before the contract expires on June 30, 2014.
“It’s fine with me,” Aytes said about his contract.
