SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe school board members have approved extending the contract for the school superintendent that includes a significant salary bump.
    
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that the board voted 4-1 Tuesday night to grant a $9,000 raise for Superintendent Joel Boyd.
    
Members also passed a two-year extension on Boyd's contract.
    
Boyd will now go from earning $171,000 to $180,000 annually.
    
The superintendent says he will use the raise to establish a scholarship program for students from low-income backgrounds.
    
Glenn Wikle, the board member who cast the dissenting vote, says the contract amounts to a "large compensation package."
    
Board president Steven Carrillo says the salary is on par with what superintendents in other cities with similar enrollment numbers earn.
    
Boyd was hired in 2012 on a two-year contract.
