Word from folks who attended Monday’s District 65 School Board meeting is that the board voted to extend Superintendent Hardy Murphy’s contract to 2012.

The vote reportedly was four in favor and two opposed, with one member voting “present.”

The vote came despite considerable controversy over the deal, which will financially tie future school boards to the superintendent, whose contract previously ran to 2009.
