Retirement Refund Update (3-7-2018)
To All LCPS Employees,
The Michigan Supreme Court has ruled that PA 75 of 2010, which was in effect from July 2010 until September 2012 and mandated that members contribute 3% of their compensation to the Retiree Healthcare Fund, is unconstitutional and that member contributions (which are currently being held in escrow) shall be refunded to members.
Office of Retirement Services (ORS) is working to implement the Supreme Court’s decision and return contributions to the school districts where the contributions were withheld. These refunds will be issued to members through the school districts.
The ORS has issued Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) that states they will be contacting members soon with refund amounts. The ORS expects to transfer the funds to the districts with the January 22nd state aid payment. You may follow this link to view the FAQs http://www.michigan.gov/orsschools/0,4653,7-206-36609-456119--,00.html.
Along with working with the ORS, the business office will be coordinating the payment of the refund with the MISD, who does the programming and processing of all the county’s districts’ payroll. As soon as we know more about the refund process, we will send an update to you.

Microsoft Outlook Web Access is a Microsoft Exchange Active Server Application that gives you private access to your Microsoft Outlook or Microsoft Exchange personal e-mail account so that you can view your Inbox from any Web browser.
Web Access has been updated and its appearance is slightly different. At the logon screen choose the "private computer" option and enter your user id as follows: lcps\username.
To remain consistent with the district's Green Energy Initiative (G.E.I.), the L'Anse Creuse Public Schools has moved to a system of providing employee pay stubs, on-line, via the MISD's Employee Portal. This is in lieu of printing and distributing a physical stub.
The Intranet can now be accessed from any location. The Intranet is a resource tool created by staff and is intended for L’Anse Creuse staff only. To access the Intranet you will need your L’Anse Creuse logon and password.
