The Barrow County Board of Education voted 6-3 to extend Superintendent Wanda Creel's contract for one year during a special called meeting on Tuesday.
Her current contract is up March 31, 2013. Board members Rickey Bailey, Will Dunn and Chairman Mark Still cast the opposing votes.
Creel, who was not part of the closed meeting, was handed her evaluation with notes and questions from the board.
As part of the motion, the board suggested she review the documents so that another meeting could be scheduled to discuss the specifics, including the terms of the contract, which could include any pay increase.
“The key issue here tonight was renewal,” said Dan Cromer, after he made the motion.
