Common COVID-19-related employer questions
June 9, 2021
Due to the ongoing pandemic, school districts and county offices of education have been changing some of their regular practices and have been reaching out to CalSTRS with questions about whether changes related to compensation and service are creditable and how to report them. These changes include increasing the base days for the school year, offering more sick days to employees, and offering more leave for employees affected by COVID-19.
This Employer Circular does not take precedence over the law; it is meant to clarify how school districts and county offices of education should report to CalSTRS when there are changes due to COVID-19.
Employer Information Circulars [EIC] are sent to school district and community college employers as informal guidance that provides immediate information on a single topic.Download circular
