State Teachers Double Dipping, Even at A School Near You

Story that Mark Belling broke over at 1130 WISN and picked up by JSOnline.

State investigating rehiring of UW-Green Bay official - JSOnline

"The revelation that a vice chancellor at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay retired from his $131,000-a-year position and returned about a month later while continuing to draw his retirement benefit has prompted the state to launch an investigation into whether the move was made legally.

The university's decision to rehire its top finance official, Tom Maki, also prompted state Rep. Steve Nass (R-Whitewater) to cancel a public hearing scheduled for Thursday on tuition legislation that's supported by UW-Green Bay.

State law bars agencies from making an arrangement to rehire someone who is planning to retire before that person leaves. Nass said he suspects that's what happened in Maki's case. The university denies there was an arrangement.

"Can I prove it? I'm going to try," said Nass, who chairs the state Assembly's Colleges and Universities Committee. "This arrangement for the vice chancellor can't be allowed to stand.""

So teachers retired last spring and then got rehired. Where else is this happening? 

Let's just look at the Suring School District where I pay taxes. 

Wednesday March 9, 2011 School board minutes. School Board accept teacher resignations. 
Starts on page 4.

Wednesday August 10, 2011 meeting, REALLY, teachers rehired. 
Look on page 2 .

Huh, interesting. If you go to the Siring school directory here you will see some familiar names now teaching at Suring for the 2011 / 2012 school year. Just wondering how much they were hired back at? Hummmmm?

Wonder if any media outlet will look into any other schools in the area? Naw, they will just cover up the story anyway!

Huh, it's only our property tax dollars.
