February 28, 2013

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — A retirement incentive approved this week by the Waynesboro Area School Board was designed to seek early retirement notices from teachers and professional staff.

The school district will pay $500 to people who submit written notices of their retirement by March 15, according to the motion passed Tuesday by the school board.

Retirees shall withdraw from active service and the drawing of an annuity from the Pennsylvania School Employees’ Retirement System, the motion stated.

Early notifications of retirements allows the district to find candidates for openings prior to summer training workshops, Superintendent Sherian Diller said.

“We’re going to hopefully have people submitting their notice early, so we can hire,” Board President Chris Lind said.

At least two people have already submitted retirement notices, and they will be eligible for the financial incentive, Diller said.
