The problem is that most smaller school districts will now not be able to afford to hire retired teachers due to the fact that they will have to kick in the 15% to TRS.
Before, if a retired teacher sat out a year (which is mandatory) then rehired to teach (which enables the teacher to draw two salaries) that teacher had to kick in the 15% of the rehire salary to TRS.
There are a lot of school districts that hire retired teachers but having them pay the 15% will knock most of these districts out of the loop.
My wife just retired from teaching after 32 years. We are moving to the beach. She had planned to sit out her mandatory year and hire in at either East Chambers, Hamshire-Fannett, High Island or Galveston ISD (Crenshaw Elementary on Bolivar). Other than GISD, I highly doubt the other school districts will be willing to hire due to the 15%.
Looks like a tough draw for BH, but you would expect that in the finals. Hallsville will pitch ace Landon Bowden, a super Soph already committed to TCU. He is a strikeout king with a miniscule 1.14 ERA.
Hopefully Warren will find a coach that can get the kids to buy into his program. Winning teams have a year around program and kids are required to participate. A lot of the kids will not buy into the program, instead of lifting weights in the summer they had rather play computer games. It is hard to get a kid to buy into a losing program.
