Early Resignation Incentive:  Certificated Staff Only

 

 

The growing teacher shortages have placed a great demand on the Worth County R-III School District to fill vacancies with qualified personnel.  To this end, professional employees who for any reason intend to retire or resign are encouraged to indicate their plans in writing to the Board as early as possible.  To facilitate this process quicker, and reward those individuals for notifying the Worth County R-III School District in a timely manner, the Worth County R-III Board of Education recognizes an incentive for early notification of resignation and retirement.

 

Any certified professional employee who for any reason intends to retire or resign at the end of the school year, and informs the board by turning in their resignation by the Regular November Board meeting will receive a $1,000 early resignation incentive or anyone submitting their resignation by the Regular January Board meeting will receive a $500 early resignation incentive.  All of the following criteria must be met to receive the early resignation incentive:

 

  1. A formal resignation must be submitted to the Superintendent of Schools by Noon on the day of the Regular November Board meeting for the $1,000 stipend or by Noon on the day of the Regular January Board meeting for the $500 stipend.
  2. The certified employee must complete all check out procedures with their direct supervisor at the conclusion of the school year.
  3. After all building check out procedures have been completed, the certified employee will receive the incentive check on the same day they receive their regular June paycheck.
  4. Payment of this incentive will be made following all requirements of the Missouri School Retirement System and State & Federal tax laws.
