Linda S. Lane will retain her position as superintendent of Pittsburgh Public Schools for another three years.

The district's Board of Directors this month entered into a new three-year agreement with Lane, effective through June 2016.

“As we continue to evolve into a district of first choice for families, I am privileged to have been leading the Pittsburgh Public Schools in such a time of change,” Lane said in a statement released last week.  “I am honored to continue to serve the students and families of Pittsburgh, a place I now call home.”

Superintendent Lane has elected to keep her compensation at $200,000, effective Jan. 1, 2013, despite earning increases totaling $20,000 authorized by the Board over the past two years.
