For more information on these programs, see our Benefits page. You can download a Salary Reduction Agreement to enroll in or change the amount that is deposited into your supplemental retirement account.
At the beginning of the school year, staff can sign up for paycheck deduction whereby a pre-determined amount is deducted directly from your check to pay for parking and membership at the Kress Events Center. Parking permits paid through payroll deduction are deducted as pre tax amounts.
