Salary Deductions

Deductions shall be made from the paychecks of all employees for retirement and federal and state income tax in keeping with federal and state requirements and Medicare tax if applicable.

Salary deductions shall be available to all employees for payment of approved hospitalization insurance premiums, group life insurance premiums approved by PERA and saving and insurance plan premiums to any company approved by the employees and the Board.

Payroll deductions may be requested by an employee for payment of funds to an approved tax sheltered annuity fund. These annuities shall be selected by the employees and the Board.

Salary deductions shall be made for absences not covered by leave policies adopted by the Board of Education. Such deductions shall be calculated on the basis of the employee’s work year.

Except for deductions required by court order (i.e. wage garnishments, court-ordered child support, etc.), other deductions shall require Board approval and permission of the employee.
