MUSKOGEE, Okla. (AP) -- The former superintendent of Muskogee public schools has agreed to take over the same job at the Boynton-Moton school district.
69-year-old James Christian will report to work Tuesday.
Christian was superintendent of Muskogee Public Schools from July 1987 through June 1991. He cited health reasons then for his retirement decision.
Christian said his new job will be a challenge but also an opportunity to help, which he says he wants to take every chance to do at his age.
Christian said because he is retired, his salary will be dictated in part by the Oklahoma Teachers Retirement System. He said his schedule will be flexible.
He succeeds Steven Henson, who resigned from the position. Henson was charged with a misdemeanor involving the injury of his stepdaughter.
