Dr. Renee Foose's replacement to lead the Howard County Schools will stay with them for at least another year. 

The school board voted unanimously to extend acting superintendent Michael Martirano's contract through next year. His term officially begins July 1. 

Board members say they'll begin discussions on a timeline to find a permanent superintendent soon. They plan on organizing community meetings on the topic.
