Reporting payments related to teacher shortages

January 20, 2022

The shortage of teachers has impacted districts across the state of California, and districts may be considering compensating current employees for performing additional creditable service or teaching additional students. These payments must meet the definition of creditable compensation to be reportable to CalSTRS.
