Teacher retirement incentive is surprisingly popular

A retirement incentive for veteran high school teachers is working even better than planned.

The offer was set to expire today, but has been extended to April 15, Nevada Joint Union High School District Superintendent Ralf Swenson said this afternoon.

The district is hoping to cut down on its payroll to ease a $2.1 million shortfall in its $31 million budget.

Teachers have already accepted five cost-cutting furlough days, but the district needs some retirements from among its 195 certificated employees to offset declining enrollment.
