Twenty-one veteran teachers across Levy County received letters last week notifying them that their annual contracts would not be renewed for the upcoming 2009-2010 school year.
The 21 educators, each with at least 30 years of teaching experience, were either part of the extended DROP (Deferred Retirement Option Plan) program or retired and then rehired back on annual contract.
“Those teachers were paid at the top of the pay scale based upon their years of experience,” said Candace Dean, Director of Personnel for Levy County School District.
