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.
