TRS Board changes substitute rule to allow retirees to work for the summer without district surcharges

Last week, the TRS Board of Trustees adopted an emergency amendment that would expand the definition of a substitute to include service retirees that return to work during the summer on a temporary basis due to the imminent peril of the learning loss as a result of the COVID/summer slide. The change would not penalize districts for hiring these retirees now classified as substitutes for the summer.
