Earlier this year, it looked as if it would take an A-plus effort for rookies to get teaching jobs in Northwest suburban schools.

But under the recently approved 2.2 pension plan, teachers can earn their pensions more quickly. That might induce teachers to retire a year or two early. Local districts could get used to that.

On Tuesday, Hutton's replacement will be announced at a special board meeting that starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Willard Administrative Center, 1050 Ivy Hall Lane in Buffalo Grove. …
