GREEN BAY - The Green Bay School Board has approved a large number of retirement requests from teachers and administrators.

 

With the future of the state budget uncertain, 140 teachers and 15 administrators asked to join the emeritus program.  That works out to about 1 out of every 12 teachers in the district.

 

The emeritus program gives one full year's salary paid over three years.  That is in addition to pension benefits.  In return, the retiree provides 10 days of service to the district each year during that time.  The emeritus program is something that has been negotiated into the teachers' contract through collective bargaining.

 

Last year 26 teachers and staff members applied for the program.

 

Several other area school districts (many who do not have the emeritus program) have reported rises in retirement filings as well.
