HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Huntsville City Schools are taking action now to make sure Superintendent Dr. Casey Wardynski sticks around.

Thursday night, the school board took up a plan to extend Wardynski's contract for another two years, even though he has more than a year and half left on the contract he has now.

Rumors about Wardynski possibly leaving must have gotten the attention of the school board.

The board talked about giving Wardynski what he says he really wants.

The school board considers giving Wardynski more time with an eye to projectors like computers in the classroom, new building, finances, and progress on desegregation, but the extension would keep Wardynski on until June of 2017, at the same salary, although if the state approves a raise for educators, he'd get one too.

And it drops a special pay bonus for meeting certain progress milestones, which he said it had become too "contentious."

The new contract can be viewed when it's posted on the school district's website on Friday.

The school board is scheduled to vote on it December 20th.
