August OSERS Statement

Good afternoon,

I was informed that the mailing of the August 3, 2020 OSERS pension pay statements will be delayed for the month of August 2020.  Please rest assure the direct deposits and the few actual checks were sent out already to ensure timely deposit and receipt of checks.

The machine used to produce the pension statements broke again during production.  OSERS relies on OPS to produce and mail these monthly statements.  We recognize this is the second consecutive month the statements will be delayed and that this has occurred earlier this year as well.  OSERS will be evaluating the decision(s) to be made by OPS to resolve this matter.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I am not sure who to connect with, but I am interested in finding a retired elementary teacher to help tutor/augment my daughter’s learning experience for fall 2020.  I am a former educator with OPS (now working in the nonprofit sector) and my daughter, Rowen, has an extensive medical history that will prevent her from attending a traditional classroom experience until she is vaccinated.  She is a student at Crestridge Elementary in their dual language program and entering 4th grade.  She qualifies for an IEP in speech; however, is on grade-level in all aspects.  
The plan OPS will have Rowen is yet to determined; however, from conversations with her principal, it may not be as ‘robust’ as those attending in-person and likely not include enrichment courses.  I would like to augment her learning by inviting an educator to come to our home a few times a week to support her learning.
Can you help direct me to someone/group that may interested, and can help us find a ‘right fit’?  Thank you for your guidance, and hope you have a good week!
Jeanee Weiss
