At the September 23, 2021, meeting the CTPF Board of Trustees took action and amended the Return to Work Rules to define “Days” as excluding an in‐service day that a retired teacher must attend in order to serve as a substitute teacher. The in‐service days do not involve classroom teaching and therefore do not constitute re employment as a “teacher,” as referenced in Section 17‐149 of the Pension Code.
Section III.E.107 of the Return to Work Rules, “Definition of a Day,” has been changed to include the section italicized below:
III.E.107 Definition of a Day. For purposes of this Article, a retiree shall be deemed to have worked a “day” when an Employer reports the retiree worked for compensation as a Teacher for at least one hour in any calendar day. However, a “day” shall not include an “in service” day that the retiree must attend in order to qualify as a substitute.
