Washington County School Superintendent Elizabeth Morgan said this morning she expects to have her contract renewed for four more years at tonight's school board meeting.

Morgan came to Washington County in 2001 as interim superintendent when Herman Bartlett resigned. She was expected to stay for one year.

After she served about seven months, the school board decided she should stay on as superintendent. She signed a four-year contract that started July 1, 2002.

Her salary as interim superintendent was $105,000, which was what she was earning as the chief academic officer of Baltimore City Public Schools before she came to Washington County.

Morgan's new contract will run from July 1, 2006, to June 30, 2010, she said.

According to the press release, the School Board is expected to officially sign the contract during the March 6 board meeting.
