Staffers say the poor economic climate is forcing teachers to work longer. In 2007-08, for example, 84 teachers (certificated employees) retired, but that number dropped dramatically to 26 in 2010-11.
The staff report doesn't lay out all of the details, but says the district can offer a supplementary retirement program through Public Agency Retirement Services that would save Capistrano Unified at least $600,000 a year.
The report doesn't estimate how many teachers are elgible to retire under the plan, or what number of teachers staffers expect to take advantage of the offer.
Trustees meet January 25.
