Ryan Quinn, WV Gazette-Mail

Steve Paine will return for a second stint as West Virginia schools superintendent. State Board of Education members voted to hire him Thursday, after several hours of closed-door meetings.

Paine, who was superintendent from mid-2005 through the end of 2010, and two other candidates were interviewed, and Paine was then hired at an annual salary of $230,000. The board hired Paine in a voice vote, with no nays heard. There was no public discussion among board members before the vote.

Paine will start Monday. In September, Superintendent Michael Martirano announced that he planned to leave on June 30. School board President Tom Campbell said he asked Martirano on Thursday to leave earlier, and Martirano agreed.
