The Charleston Board of Education Monday approved plans for the eventual retirement of Superintendent Jim Littleford.  The retirement would not be for another four years, though.

Littleford said he received a five-year contract extension from the Board last month.  However, a retirement scenario approved last night would allow to him to retire as of June 30, 2017. 

Littleford said by the time the four years pass, his three children would be students at Charleston High School and he would have completed 41 years in education.  He said he thinks that's enough, although he said he has been treated great by the Charleston district.

Littleford is a former administrator in the Effingham Unit 40 school district and was superintendent of the Altamont school district when he was hired at Charleston.
