Noncertificated support staff members who work in a position which continuously requires their services for at least 20 hours per week must be participants in the Public Education Employee Retirement System (PEERS) of the State of Missouri as allowed by law. A retired employee, as well as his or her dependents, surviving spouse and children, shall be allowed to remain or become members in non-insurance health benefit programs, self-funded plans and insured plans by qualifying for the coverage in the manner prescribed by law under the provisions of such plan and paying the premiums of said plans.

Members will contribute a percentage of their salary into the retirement system. The Board will contribute a match of the same amount. If members cease to be public school employees, they may withdraw their funds by writing the retirement office of PEERS. Application for refund may be made 30 days after termination date.

Persons engaged by the district as independent contractors, including consultants, are not by virtue of such engagement considered employees of the district for purposes of membership or contribution to the Public School Retirement System or PEERS.
