The 100,000-student DeKalb County school district in Georgia must pay more than $280,000 into the state’s teacher-retirement system, after state officials learned that six retirees worked more hours than allowed by law. In positions ranging from student registration coordinator to after-school-program coordinator, the retirees clocked more than the 19 hours a week they were supposed to be working.
