Fifty-four of the district's employees opted into the new offer, which grants them $50,000 in monthly installments over the next five years. The deal will save Fayetteville School District a projected $5.6 million dollars over the next eight years due to being able to bring in younger, less-experienced teachers that can work for a lower salary.
In addition to the employees seeking early retirement, thirty-four teachers and administrators will be leaving their current position. The retirements and resignations will be effective as of June 30.
