The district and CSEA/OTBS agree 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 CSEA/OTBS. 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 positions vacated by retirement shall be filled, provided that any net savings to the General Fund-Unrestricted from the 2016-17 SERP in Fiscal year 2017-18, will only be used to fill positions that are in needed areas and/or are needed to meet contractual obligations.
