Employee Resignation

  • In order to separate from the Bastrop ISD, you must submit a letter of resignation to your principal or supervisor. The letter must be dated and include the effective date of your resignation and your signature.

    If you are also retiring through the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS), please contact them directly. You may access their website via http://www.trs.state.tx.us or call 1-800-223-8778. Please note: Although your resignation is processed through BISD, your retirement is processed through the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS). BISD cannot address questions related to retirement.

    Further Information About the Resignation Process:

    • If you are interested in requesting a refund of your TRS member contribution, you may download the TRS 6 form. The form must be signed and notarized and submitted/mailed directly to TRS in Austin. Please Note: This is not a requirement when you separate from employment, however, it is an option.
    • If you are retiring through TRS, you will receive a Notice of Final Deposit Before Retirement. This is also referred to as the TRS 7 Form. It will be sent directly to you from TRS after you have requested retirement information. This form is submitted by you to BISD Business Office for completion and submission to TRS directly from BISD.
