ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More than 300 Dougherty County School System employees will be offered early retirement packages.

The School Board finance committee voted unanimously Friday to offer early retirements to employees with 25 or more years service.

The board says it's a good option for both the employees and the school system.  "The program is fully voluntary. The idea, though, is that there may be some people in the system that would opt early and it would money for the school system and the taxpayer,"    said Board Chairman David Maschke.

The plan will be broken down into two categories- one for people with 25 to 29 years experience and another for people with 30 or more years.

No timetable has been set on when decisions must be made, but officials say they plan to present a completed plan next week.
