The Windsor board of education expressed continued support for Superintendent of Schools Dr. Jeffrey Villar Tuesday night, voting to extend his contract in town by one year.
The contract extension keeps Villar in the district through 2016.
Per board of education policy, the three-year contract is the longest period of time a superintendent can be committed to.
The board also voted to give Villar a 3-percent raise, bringing his annual salary to $190,180.
Neither vote was unanimous.
Minority Leader Paul Panos was out of town Tuesday, but the vote still followed party lines, with Independent Kristin Ingram voting with board Democrats.
Republicans Cristina Santos and Pam DiGiore voted against both the contract extension and the raise.
Villar's evaluation was conducted during a closed-door portion of the board meeting.
The board also voted to adjust the superintendent's contract to run concurrently with the academic calendar.
