Planning to Retire or Resign Before Next School Year? February 15th Stipend Deadline

Our contract provides a stipend to encourage employees who know they will be resigning or retiring to give notice prior to the Spring unassignment and transfer process, so educators may apply for the vacancy. This maximizes the vacancies available for educators to apply. If you notify the District in writing of your intent to resign or retire no later than February 15th, you will receive a stipend of $700, to be paid in your final paycheck from the District. This does not apply if you are resigning in lieu of termination, non-renewal, or non-extension.
