TUPELO, Miss. (AP) - The Tupelo School Board has extended Superintendent Gearl Loden’s contract by a year.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (ttp://bit.ly/1J7HNGn) the move keeps a fourth year on the contract, which is the longest term allowed by state law. The deal now runs through June 30, 2019.

The extension was approved Tuesday.

Financial terms of the contract remain unchanged. In May, the board amended the deal to give Loden an automatic 3 percent cost of living increase annually. That will raise next year’s salary to $202,737.
