Retirement Reminder

Just a reminder:  According to your NTL contract, if you are planning to retire this year, the following sick time payout applies.

Percentage and Per Diem of Retirement Benefits

Effective upon the retirement of a teacher who is eligible for immediate retirement benefits under Chapter 167 of the Connecticut General Statutes, the teacher shall be paid seventy-five percent (75%) of his/her accumulated sick leave.  Teachers must provide written notice of intent to retire to the Superintendent prior to February 1st in the fiscal year the retirement is effective.  If notice of retirement is given prior to February 1st, the teacher shall receive such payment at the beginning of the next fiscal year.  In the event notice of retirement is given on or after February 1st, the teacher shall receive such payment at the beginning of the second fiscal year following such notice of retirement.  Such payment shall be made at the rate of fifty dollars ($50.00) per day.
