John G. Ladner, the interim superintendent in Moss Point, will remain in that position through this school year.
The School Board voted unanimously to keep him on. He was hired after the board decided not to renew former superintendent Kim Staley's contract at the end of June.
Ladner said he is humbled by the opportunity and will continue to work with staff and students as the district moves forward.
