CENTERVILLE, Ohio (WDTN) - Centerville City Schools are considering rehiring six already retired teachers in an effort to save money this coming school year.
The board met Monday to again discuss this proposal. Under the contract, these teachers would be hired at an entry level salary and never get a raise.
"We are getting a very experienced teacher at a price that cannot be beat," said Dr. David Roer, who is president of the school board.
Dr. Roer said this move will save taxpayers a quarter of a million dollars a year.
A large amount, commented Roer, considering the most recent levies have failed and the district has been forced to cut $12 million from its budget over the past four years.
The proposal has brought up the term "double dipping". These teachers would be receiving a salary and collecting their pension simultaneously.
"In the end it is saving taxpayers money," said Dr. Roer.
Parents agree it would be quite a savings for the district, that is already financially strapped.
"I think the idea is fine as long as the most qualified teacher gets the position," said Amy Thompson, who has two children in the district. "Centerville's schools is why we moved here."
The board has not yet voted on the proposal.
