Support staff who will complete their current contract with the board may apply for retirement.  No support staff members will be required to retire at any specific age.


Application for retirement will be considered made when the support staff member states in writing to the superintendent, no later than the date set by the board for the return of the employee's contract to the board if applicable, the employee's intent to retire.


Board action to approve a support staff member's application for retirement shall be final, and such action constitutes termination of the employee's contract effective the day of the employee's retirement.


Support staff members and their spouse and dependents who have group insurance coverage through the school district may be allowed to continue coverage of the school district's group health insurance program, at their own expense, by meeting the requirements of the insurer.
