CalSTRS creditable service: Impact of AB 1505 on teacher service at charter schools

Information Circular

Chapter 486, Statutes of 2019 (Assembly Bill 1505), changed credentialing requirements in California charter schools. These legislative changes have raised questions regarding creditable service and mandatory membership requirements of teachers in the CalSTRS Defined Benefit and Cash Balance Benefit programs.

This Employer Circular does not take precedence over the law; it is meant to clarify creditable service and mandatory membership requirements for teachers performing service at charter schools, and the charter school’s responsibilities of reporting that service to CalSTRS.
