The Minuteman School Committee voted Tuesday to renew Superintendent Edward Bouquillon’s contract for another year, despite simmering anger in the school community over the recent revelation that he violated state procurement rules and may have attempted to circumvent the law by splitting bids on certain contracts.
Eight committee members voted to renew the contract for a one-year term; four voted against, and one abstained. The vote followed nearly an hour of public comments, many of which were sharply critical of the superintendent.
His new contract runs only one year, and increases his annual salary by $26,930 to $179,700, but does not include an annuity or reimbursement for housing expenses. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
