Retirement

Full-time employees hired prior to July 1, 2010, in any Virginia public schools is considered a Plan 1 member.  The Virginia General Assembly, in its 2010 session, passed legislation implementing new plan provisions for employees hired or rehired on or after July 1, 2010. The new plan provisions are called the VRS Plan 2.  The Virginia General Assembly has since implemented an additional retirement plan for anyone hired after January 1, 2014.  This new plan is called the Hybrid Retirement Plan. 

Waynesboro City Schools offers retirement benefits through the Virginia Retirement System (VRS) for all full-time employees working a minimum of 35 hours per week.
