Published: 6/22/2018 7:51 AM
Various state agencies make payments on behalf of school districts for the employer’s portion of Health Benefits, Teachers’ Retirement System (TRS), technology, debt services, and Kentucky Inter-local School Transportation Association (KISTA) energy savings capital leases. Districts issue federal reimbursement payments to the Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) for the employer’s portion of health benefits that were initially paid by the department for federally funded district employees.
