West Clermont Local School District
Bylaws & Policies


As set forth in the terms of an individual contract, administrators employed by the Board of Education may elect, at the time of retirement from active service with the Board and upon presentation of evidence of service retirement from the appropriate retirement system, to receive severance pay for their accrued but unused sick leave.

Severance pay shall be based upon the administrator's rate of pay at the time of retirement and eliminates the employee's entire sick leave accrual upon payment.

If an employee dies on or after the date upon which s/he becomes eligible for severance payment under the provisions of this policy, the employee will be deemed to have retired on the date of death and the Board will provide severance payment to his/her estate in the amount as determined herein.

Payment shall not be made until the administrator's retirement is verified to the office of the Superintendent by the retirement system.

Severance payment shall be made only once to an administrator.

Payment may be made on the employee's behalf to a qualified tax-sheltered 403(b), health retirement, or other qualified plan upon direction of the employee and to the extent permitted by law.

For purposes of this policy "retirement" means service retirement under State Teachers Retirement System or the School Employees Retirement System and does not include disability retirement.
