3.  Early Retirement Eligibility:  We updated the list of teachers meeting the minimum age of 55.  In order to be eligible for state retirement, they must also meet the Rule of 85.  In order to be eligible for an early retirement district incentive, they must also have a Masters Degree or equivalent and 10 years of service.  If you have teachers who are 55 or older, and don't meet all of the qualifications of the early retirement policy, the board has considered partial incentives if the number of qualified candidates do not access the program.
