Four teachers at North Adams Community Schools have signed up for an early-retirement incentive program and will be leaving the district at the end of the current school year.
Earlier this year the school board agreed to offer incentives of up to $15,000 in cash or tax-deferred accounts to a maximum of 10 and a minimum of five North Adams teachers who agree by to retire at the end of the 2011-2012 school year. Meeting on Tuesday evening, the board agreed to waive the original minimum requirement and accept the four early retirements.

South Adams Schools will implement a new plan for teacher evaluations as mandated by the state beginning with the 2012-13 school year.
Superintendent Scott Litwiller said at Tuesday's board meeting that a committee of teachers and administrators has been working on the plan, but that the South Adams plan "is a modification of the Indiana Department of Education's RISE Teacher Evaluation model."
