PERS Gold has been selected as the District's 2024 lowest cost plan. This means that the District will contribute 85% of the PERS Gold amounts of $679.52 to $1,766.76 depending on benefit selection of employee only to family coverage. The District selected this plan in an effort to slowly work toward the lowest plan available to CCSD employees and not create a significant financial impact. IAFF MOU Section 24.B. includes language related to the lowest cost plan and the District has the discretion to opt for a higher level plan.
