TRB: 2017-18 Subject Shortage Area or Priority School District Reemployment

2017-18 Subject Shortage Area or Priority School District Reemployment

A retired member may be reemployed in a designated Subject Shortage Area or in a school in a Priority School District and continue to receive pension income for a period of one school year.  (With prior approval by the Teachers’ Retirement Board, such reemployment may be extended for an additional school year.)  The employing school district must submit a Subject Shortage Area or Priority School District Reemployment Form (PDF 104KB) to CTRB prior to the reemployment of the retired member.  While reemployed in a designated Subject Shortage Area or a school in a Priority School District, such former teacher shall be eligible for the same health insurance benefits provided to active teachers employed by such school system.  During this period of reemployment, a health insurance subsidy payment will not be issued nor is the reemployed member eligible to participate in a TRB Health Plan.
