Superintendent John Fredericksen will serve another term to head up the Wicomico County public school system.
But the vote by the school board was not unanimous.
Members Carolyn Elmore and Don Fitzgerald opposed a second term.
And several parents, who showed up at the board meeting, also spoke out against him complaining about the meeting being held at night with Fredericksen in the room.
Board President Ron Willey said members had received many emails both for and against the reappointment.
