The State Board of Education unanimously re-elected Bill Harrision as its chairman, and Wayne McDevitt its vice chairman.
Harrison has led the board for about 18 months, chosen by Gov. Bev Perdue to be chairman and CEO.
He relinquished the CEO title and job running the state Department of Public Instruction after a successful court challenge by state Superintendent of Public Instruction June Atkinson.
A former school district superintendent, Harrison's term on the board expires in March.
McDevitt, who lives in Marshall, has been a board member since 2001.
