MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — Alabama school Superintendent Tommy Bice says he's accepted a two-year contract extension that comes with a $52,000 raise.

Bice told Thursday that the extension will enable him to be bolder in his work with the governor and Legislature.

Bice says he asked for the extension, but not the raise. The board approved it last week. It boosts Bice's annual salary to $250,000.

Bice says he knows his raise will be contrasted with K-12 teachers, who have received one 2 percent raise since 2007. But he says he supports the need for teachers to have an increase.
