The district and the OSS Unit agreed that the SERP must have sufficient plan participation in order to meet the district's fiscal and operational objectives by the enrollment deadline of April 21, 2017, in order for the SERP to go into effect for the OSS Unit.  These objectives include that the SERP will generate net savings, or no net cost, to the district's General Fund-Unrestricted, in the initial year of implementation and cumulatively over five years.  Further, the district reserves the right to determine which position vacated by retirement shall be filled.
