All personnel, as a condition of employment, must join the Wyoming Retirement System and their salaries shall be subject to the withholding contributions established by law.
Upon the recommendation of the superintendent, the Board may annually review written requests by employees to continue working after the age of 70. The decision reached will be based upon the employee’s ability to work and his physical fitness to continue working and shall be subject to the provisions of federal and state laws relating to mandatory retirement.
Non-certificated staff members who wish to continue working after the age of 70 must submit their request in writing to the superintendent along with a statement from a doctor as to his or her physical condition.
Current practice codified 1978
Note: Federal law (FP.L. 95-256) sets age 70 as the age at which a school district can mandate an employee’s retirement solely on the basis of age. Other considerations, such as fitness and ability to work, may justify earlier retirement but only within the terms of the law and any applicable federal and state regulations.
