I read with interest the three options that the Board of Education is considering regarding Superintendent Russ Bennett's retirement announcement.
Of the three, the one which seems to be the best for both Mr. Bennett and the district is to accept his resignation, then rehire him. This would be a win-win proposition.
For Mr. Bennett, he could begin to receive his pension and a salary from the district, thus almost doubling his present income. For the district, it would continue to retain the services of an excellent superintendent. It also avoid would avoid a protracted search for a successor.
Many districts allow this type of arrangement, so why not Aurora?
