Retirement Planning is important for each employee in the District. Whether you are a new hire or a veteran employee, it's a good idea to review your plan for retirement.


Getting Started...

Review the information on this website and on the website pertaining to your FRS Plan (Pension or Investment). There are brochures, guides, videos and other resources available.


Attend a Workshop...

From time to time workshops, webinars, and meetings are offered through the District and through the FRS. Some of these are for informational purposes and are for all District employees regardless of how close they are to retirement. Others are tailored to those employees who are closer to retirement. Check out the Workshop section on each page for more information.


Transition Planning...

You may want to think about your options after retirement. What would YOU like to do? Have you always wanted to spend more time with your grandchildren? Would you like to travel? Or would you like to transition into retirement and volunteer at some of our District schools? Information on volunteering is available on the District's Volunteer website.


It's Up to You...

Retirement is that time in your life where you can do what you want to nothing at all. It's all up to you. Staying informed and planning ahead will help you reach your personal retirement goals.
