  • § 1944c. Employer charges for federal grants or reimbursements

    (a) Notwithstanding any provision of law to the contrary, effective on July 1, 2015, the employer retirement costs and administrative operating expenses related to the retirement plans applicable to those teachers whose funding is provided from federal grants or through federal reimbursement shall be paid by local school systems or educational entities that participate in the Vermont Teachers' Retirement Fund from those federal monies.

    (b) The percentage rates to be applied shall be determined by an actuary approved by the Board of Trustees of the State Teachers' Retirement System of Vermont and shall be applied to the total earnable compensation of members prepared by the actuary in compliance with subsection 1942(r) of this title. The Secretary of Education shall annually provide an accounting of federal grants and federal reimbursements, by school system, upon which payment by the participating schools shall be determined.

    (c) The State Treasurer and the Secretary of Education shall establish procedures for the collection and deposit of those monies in the State Teachers' Retirement System of Vermont. The Secretary of Education may delay implementation upon review of the federal grant program to permit timely and accurate claims for reimbursement of retirement expenses under a particular federal program in order to receive funding under that program. The Secretary of Education shall provide an annual report to the House and Senate Committees on Appropriations and on Education regarding progress in implementation of this section.
