The school board renewed Superintendent Bob Moore's contract for an additional year at its regular meeting Thursday evening.
"There is no one else I would rather have in charge of the school district than Bob Moore," said Tami Keeling, board president.
The new contract has the same terms as last year, Keeling said. His 2010 pay was $191,087 according to school district salary records. His salary will remain the same.
The board also called a general and special election Thursday night for two expiring seats and a third special situation.
The District 3 seat, held by board member Lou Svetlik and the District 5 seat, held by Keeling, are up for election.
The District 1 seat, held by board member the Rev. Kevin Van Hook, is also up for election through a special election. Van Hook was appointed to serve in October after the death of former board member James Murphy Sr.
The board also nominated Moore for a superintendent of the year award issued by the Texas Association of School Boards.
