Dr. Durant signs multi-year deal to continue with TPS

      A Toledo native and TPS grad, Dr. Durant is also a graduate of the University of Toledo.

      The word "interim" can now be dropped from Dr. Romules Durant's title of TPS Superintendent.

      Dr. Durant accepted a multi-year contract extension following an initial one-year offer made in August.

      On Tuesday, the Toledo native and TPS graduate accepted the deal that will keep him in the Glass City until 2018.

      The agreement includes a base salary of $175,000 a year, the same amount paid to his predecessor, Dr. Jerome Pecko.

      Just weeks ago, contract negotiations indicated that Durant might be offered a 3-year extension.

      Up until this week, Durant was earning $140,000 a year as interim superintendent.
