Retiring from the Sun Prairie School District - 2011

At its February 28th meeting, the school board somewhat reluctantly voted to approve retirement requests from 28 long-time members of the teaching staff.

The sad part is that we lose more than 900 years of teaching experience. Looking for the silver lining, however, these folks are lucky enough to retire before facing the extreme agenda for our new long as his reign shall last.  Their departure also opens the door for young teachers looking to find a job in this economy.  In addition the district stands to incur a net savings of $1M or more...which is absolutely critical given the drastic cuts being imposed on school districts.  These teachers' decision to retire will allow the district to maintain the current level and quality of education without having to make the sacrifices that nearly all other school districts face.

We wish them well.
