(AP) - A rapidly aging teaching force in the Gary Community School Corp., where the average teacher's age is in the late 40s or early 50s, is forcing administrators to recruit nationwide for younger staffers. "It's a cause for concern," said Ann Ramsey, assistant director of personnel for the school system. "Everyone in the system is aware of the problem. Administrators and principals are working hard on recruitment." Because Gary has the largest school corporation in northwest Indiana, the problems of losing aging teachers are magnified compared to other school districts in the area. Until recently, one of the lowest starting pay rates for teachers in the area has made it difficult to attract top young teachers, In two years, more than 35 percent of the approximately 1,600 teachers in the Gary School nearing retirement. A study conducted by Ramsey two years ago, surveying 1,500 teachers in the city, shows there are now 358 teachers between the ages of 58 and 71, which is 24 percent of the workforce. Her study also reveals that in two years 35 percent of the workforce or 450 teachers will be in that age category. Ramsay said she expects the figure to keep climbing. Although concerned, school of- WE PREPARE ALL STATE TAX RETURNS H&R BLOCK- THE INCOME TAX PEOPLE Our new location: 113 S.

Personnel director Ray Komenich said the school corporation sends many of its supervisors and administrators two or three times a year to different universities across the country to attempt to lure prospective graduates to Gary. "I don't think it's going to be that much of a problem," lie said. ComeHomeTb "FeelTheWarmtK Taste The Goodness DICK'S SPORTING GOODS Serving You For 16 Yeors 753-5812 300 W.
