BALTIMORE, MD—Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the Maryland State Board of Education announced on Tuesday evening that officials have asked Dr. Karen Salmon to accept a new contract.
The new agreement will continue her service through June 30, 2021.
“We are grateful that Dr. Salmon has agreed to continue serving Maryland’s students during this national crisis,” MSDE officials said in a statement.
