The Governor’s approved 17 month budget which was enacted in February 2009 included program flexibility provisions to help mitigate the effects of the budget cuts to education. As part of that flexibility, districts were given the ability to use formerly restricted 2008/2009 and 2009/2010 funding identified as tier 3 for any educational purpose through the 2012-13 fiscal year. Resolution #10-15 authorizes the unrestricted use of the formerly restricted funds that are being flexed to unrestricted resources.

The employee must retire within one of the window periods and the incentive must be offered to all CalSTRS members eligible to retire. This board resolution will open two consecutive window periods for certificated employees to retire between February 11, 2010 and July 31, 2010. This resolution is necessary to replace the previous Resolution No. 10-03 approved on February 10, 2010. The second window listed (June 1, 2010 through July 1, 2010)did not meet the minimum requirement of sixty calendar days. SBCSS has requested this replacement resolution.

The recommended action is to adopt and approve Resolution 10-16,the CalSTRS Golden Handshake Retirement Incentive, as presented.
