The Houston school board unanimously extended the contract of Superintendent Scott Dill during an executive session of last week’s monthly meeting.
Dill, who was named superintendent in 2012 following a semester as the interim superintendent, will continue to serve in that capacity through the 2014-’15 school year under the new contract.
Dill joined Houston Schools in 2007 as the middle school principal. He replaced Charlie Malam, who has since returned as the HHS principal.
In December 2011, Dill was named the “acting superintendent” of Houston Schools after Dr. Dan Vandiver took a leave of absence and later resigned.
Dill topped a field of 13 candidates when he was hired as superintendent in January 2012. His official duties began in July.
Under Dill’s leadership, the district passed a $4 million bond issue with 72 percent approval in April 2013. It included roof repairs, an expanded cafeteria, new library and connecting the current high school and middle school buildings.
