The Toledo Board of Education today extended Superintendent Romules Durant's contract for four years.

Mr. Durant was hired earlier this year as interim superintendent and given a one-year contract. The extension would give him at least five years to implement his policies.

The base pay for the contract is $175,000 a year. He was given similar goals as predecessor Jerome Pecko, under whom Mr. Durant served as an assistant superintendent.

Mr. Durant is a Toledo native and graduate of Waite High School and the University of Toledo.
