RVC Board to approve early retirement, voluntary severance incentives

Rock Valley College (RVC) Board of Trustees is expected to approve a resolution offering non-faculty employees early retirement and voluntary severance incentives when it meets Friday morning (Aug. 29). The offer is expected to be extended to administrators such as RVC President Roland Chapdelaine.

Mike Robinson, RVC public relations director, said he did not know if Chapdelaine would take advantage of the early retirement or voluntary severance incentives.

The money-saving incentives are a response by the board to address more than $10 million in deficit spending over the past four years by Chapdelaine’s administration.

The offer will be good on a “first come, first served basis,” said a source. The goal is to entice 30-33 RVC employees to take advantage of the unprecedented offer to stem RVC’s recent tide of red ink.

Further details on this story will be available in the Sept. 3 issue of The Rock River Times.
