Schiller a contract extension that will keep him in Baltimore through December, some city school board members now privately acknowledge a long-term and perhaps permanent interest in their interim chief executive -- despite a state law that forbids it.Some of the nine board members want to see the interim chief serve at least through June -- the end of the fiscal year and six months longer than the law allows. Others would like him to sign on as the school system's chief academic officer after a permanent chief executive is found.
