Early retirement hasn’t been offered at Hubbard-Radcliffe since the 2011-12 school year. With a small number of certified staff eligible for it this year, the Board discussed offering it again. But not without some changes.
Superintendent Dr. Adam Zellmer said districts offer early retirement as a way to help with cost measures. He noted that the average salary of the three or four eligible staff members at H-R is about $65,000 annually. He added that new teachers, based on the current salary schedule, is around $39,000 per year out of college.
