BRIDGEPORT, Conn. -- Bridgeport Public Schools Interim Superintendent Aresta Johnson has been appointed to serve in the position permanently, according to the Connecticut Post.

The Board of Education unanimously approved Johnson for the role at its meeting Monday night, according to the Connecticut Post. She has served as interim superintendent since the previous interim superintendent, Fran Rabinowitz, stepped down in December.

The choice for the role had come down to Johnson and Katrise Perera, who last served as superintendent of the Isle of Wight County Schools in Virginia, the Connecticut Post reported. The board ultimately went with Johnson, who has been with the district since 2005, when she was named director of science, according to the Connecticut Post. She has also served as director of Central Magnet School, principal of Central High, and director of secondary education, the Connecticut Post said.

The board has said that the superintendent will receive $260,000, and must move to the city within a year, the Connecticut Post said.
