Lubbock ISD approves incentive for early resignation or retirement

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - On Thursday, the Lubbock ISD Board of Trustees approved a $1,500 incentive for employees; who give notice by March 11th, they will resign or retire at the end of the 2010-2011 school year. 

The incentive will be paid to full-time employees with a contract.  Resignation or retirement would be for the current contract year.

The Lubbock ISD annual attrition rate is about 175 -200 jobs, and employees have until July before they must let the district know if they are not returning, whether it is a retirement or resignation.

"We have always encouraged employees to let us know their plans to retire or resign as soon as possible, but the tight budget this year makes our ability to plan even more critical," Rick Rodriguez, assistant superintendent for human resources said. 

"This is just an incentive to encourage employees to notify the district of their intentions as soon as possible, in order for us to more efficiently plan staffing for the next school year," Rodriguez said.
