TONICA — Tonica School Board this week voted unanimously to grant superintendent John Suarez a two-year contract extension.

Also, the board:

* Approved a portable soccer goal policy to comply with government regulations.
“According to statute we have to make sure that it’s secured properly,” Suarez said. “When the school’s not in session over the summer ... or during the winter time, we’re just going to store them in the bus barn.”
The school also has ordered signs to post on the goals listing phone numbers to call if anyone discovers they are not secure.

* Approved an intergovernmental agreement with Peru Public Schools to share a school psychologist. Tonica Grade School will pay 15 percent, and Peru Public Schools will pay 85 percent.

* Voted to replace two exterior doors in the gymnasium and cafeteria. Golden Rule Lumber of Ottawa won the bid for the project.
