School board extends early retirement benefit
MONROE - Monroe teachers and non-administrative professional staff will have another year to take advantage of early retirement before the benefit sunsets, the Monroe school board decided Monday. The benefit was previously scheduled to sunset June 30, but will now carry through June 30, 2017. Board members said the extension was fair to staff and would allow them to make an informed decision about retirement.
