As an employee of a school district you are eligible for a retirement savings plan which lets you save and invest for tomorrow--while you get a tax break today.
Your contributions to the plan comes out of your paycheck before federal income tax is withheld. As a result, you will pay less tax on your current income. Furthermore, you will not have to pay tax on your savings or any investment earnings until you make a withdrawal.
