PUHSD Resignation/Retirement Process
1. If you are planning to retire, contact the ASRS to arrange for your retirement and insurance if applicable. Please refer to the ASRS section of this page.
2. Submit your letter of resignation to your school principal/supervisor by March 15th or as soon as you make your decision to resign/retire from the PUHSD.
Please note: If you are a Certificated Employee and you "break" your employment contract, you may be subject to a monetary penalty. Please refer to the Certificated Professional Agreement for the specific language or review the Voluntary Separation/Release From Contract excerpt herein.
3. Finalize your post-employment insurance. All insurance via the PUHSD will terminate on the last day of the month in which
your contract ends or on the last day of the month in which you retire/resign from the
District whichever is earlier with the exception of Flex. Flex accounts will be terminated to align with your resignation/termination date. You will have 4 options for your insurance when you leave the District:
1.Group Insurance via another employer.
2.Private Insurance via the Healthcare Marketplace:
Remember: All Life Insurance via the District (Supplemental and District Paid) is Term Life. Consequently, all policies will end per the parameters referenced above. If you wish to continue your Life Insurance, you can request an application to convert and/or port some or all of your coverage by contacting The Standard @ 800-368-1135. Note: Participants of the PUHSD Early Retirement Program per # 6 below retain their District Paid Life Insurance so conversion/portability would not be necessary for this policy only.
4. Make arrangements with Security Benefit if your projected leave payoff will be more than $5000. Please refer to the Special Pay Plan section of this page.
5. Make arrangements with your campus/site to return all District equipment & keys.
6. Turn in your PUHSD Early Retirement Program (ERP) Options form and Attestation to Cyndy Nelke @ CES - 5th Floor if applicable. The Talent Dept. will send you these forms automatically if you qualify for this Program.
