Springboro High School (Springboro, Ohio, USA)Image via Wikipedia

At tonight's Springboro School Board meeting, the board has accepted the early retirements of 31 employees.   Sixteen teachers and fifteen bus drivers and cafeteria workers will retire over the course of the next few years.

The teachers will obtain $45,000 per year for 8 years.  That is if they have been with the district for more than 10 years or more.  The other employees could get up to $20,000 per year.

This has transpired due to the last five consecutive levies failing over new operating funds.  The early retirement buyouts will help Springboro Community City School District offset projected deficits starting next year.  Other area of budget changes, we have already seen, are the cutting of jobs and closing an elementary.

Not only are these buyouts, cutbacks, and closings able to offset budget numbers but the hopes of building support within the community.

Is this good for Springboro?  Is this really going to build support amongst the community?  Will this help a school levy pass, eventually?  We want to hear from you the residents?  Comment below...
