Greetings from the Executive Director

Welcome to the September Edition of LSERS’ Employer eNews. Included in this issue is information regarding the school systems who have not returned the Annual Questionnaire, DROP dates, & Salary Contribution reporting. I encourage you to contact our knowledgeable staff to assist you with any questions or concerns.

-Charles P. Bujol

Reminder: Annual Questionnaire is Due
October 2

Please remember that all school systems must complete the annual questionnaire covering the period through the preceding fiscal year and that asks for information about the elimination of positions through privatizing, outsourcing, contracting the service with a private employer, or any other means.

As of today, LSERS  had received responses to the Annual Questionnaire from all school systems except the following parish, city or charter school systems:

Advocates for Science & Match Education Charter, Allen, Assumption, Bienville, City of Baker, Caldwell, Central Community, East Carroll, Franklin, Grant, Jackson, Jefferson, Jefferson Davis, Lafayette, Lincoln Preparatory Charter, Natchitoches, Plaquemines, St. James, St. Mary, Vermillion, Washington, West Carroll and Zachary.

If you have any questions, please contact LSERS internal auditor, LaQuinta Jordan, at 225.925.7492 or via email ljordan@lsers.net

 


Salary Contribution Reporting for 9-Month EmployeesWe are always looking for ways to help make your job easier.  That’s why we will clear some exceptions for you by reporting zeroes in July and August for 9-month employees.  After October 15th (when September salary files are due), LSERS will post zeroes in July and August if you meet the following conditions:
  • July, August, and September salary files have been submitted
  • Your agency has 9-month employees (i.e. bus operators, bus operator aides, etc.)
  • You have exceptions for not reporting salary for 9-month employees during the months of July & August
If you have any questions,  please contact Accountant Kimberlyn Stewart at 225.925.4411 or via email at  kstewart@lsers.net .
