PATRICK CO., Va. -

The Patrick County Schools Superintendent says he's sorry for saying some school board issues are, just a bunch of small town junk.

This is video of last week's board meeting just after Superintendent Roger Morris made the statement to WDBJ7.

School board members say he made the apology privately to them and to the community through local media.

The board voted to give him one more year in his position.

The board is waiting for approval from attorneys to make it official.
