Following a 28-minute closed session Tuesday night, the Barrow County Board of Education finalized the terms of school superintendent Wanda Creel’s contract and extended it to June 30, 2014. That is three months longer than an earlier arrangement approved in August. That one guaranteed her continued employment only through March 2014.
Tuesday’s vote was 5-2 with members Rickey Bailey and Mitch Churchill voting no.
Churchill told the Barrow Journal on Wednesday morning that he voted against the new contract because he thinks its term is too short.
