Atlanta (WAOK/AJC) Atlanta School Superintendent Erroll Davis has done such a great job of getting Atlanta Public Schools back on track, that the APS Board is planning to negotiate an extension of his one year contract. Davis makes $240,000 a year now. His contract could be extended until 2013.

APS Board Chair Brenda Muhammed and school board members on Monday night took the first steps to extend the contract of Superintendent  Davis, who was hired to lead the district temporarily but could wind up in office for two years.

Davis, the former chancellor of the University System of Georgia, was tapped in July to fill in as superintendent while the board searched for a replacement for Beverly Hall. But days after he officially took over, state investigators released a scathing report about widespread cheating in the urban district.

Board members moved quickly to secure Davis to a yearlong contract and Davis moved quickly in response to the cheating scandal. Most of the district’s top leadership was removed, as well as about 180 principals and teachers named in the report.

Almost six months later, Davis says it’s going to take more than a year to “get done what we need to get done.” Board members appeared to agree, and voted to enter into negotiations with the retired business executive.

Board members over the next month will work on the terms of the superintendent’s contract, which will likely extend to June 2013. The terms are scheduled for vote on Dec. 15.
