December 3--  The Treutlen County Board of Education accepted the resignation of county School Superintendent Chuck Ellington at a called board meeting Friday night.

Ellington joins more than 1,700 Georgia educators who retired effective Saturday to take advantage of a pension benefit that's being eliminated. 

A one-time three percent increase in their base for yearly pension benefits that has been given to retirees for more than 20 years is being discontinued in January.

A Treutlen teacher also decided to retire and in Toombs County four teachers and a secretary submitted resignations.  No resignations were reported in the school systems in Vidalia nor Montgomery County.

Ellington has been the superintendent in Treutlen County since July, 2004.
