Bob Moore has been appointed the superintendent of the 40,000-student Oklahoma City school district.

Mr. Moore, 57, previously led the 20,000-student Mesa County Valley district in Grand Junction, Colo., for three years. In the Oklahoma job, he succeeds William Weitzel, who had served as district superintendent since July 2001 and retired in January.

Mr. Moore has a one-year, $150,000 contract.

Joseph M. Cronin has been named the dean of the 4,300-student school of education at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass.

Succeeding William L. Dandridge, who was appointed vice president for urban affairs for the university, Mr. Cronin, 67, will begin his one-year term July 1.

For the past two years, Mr. Cronin has served as the president of the Milton, Mass.-based Edvisors Inc., an educational advisory service that provides universities, colleges, and schools with assistance in planning strategies and programs.

Charles J. Clark has been elected the chairman of the board of directors for YouthBuild USA.

Mr. Clark, 55, who retired from his position as the senior vice president of commercial banking for the U.S. Trust and Citizens Bank of Massachusetts in March, succeeds Leroy Looper, the founding chairman of YouthBuild USA, who will become chairman emeritus.

The Somerville, Mass.- based national nonprofit organization supports more than 200 local YouthBuild programs in 44 states, in which unemployed 16- to 24-year-olds build housing for low-income and homeless people while earning their high school diplomas or General Educational Development certificates.
