Sec. 1. 16 V.S.A. § 1953 is added to read:
§ 1953. PRIOR SERVICE CREDIT
A teacher who has ceased being a member upon reemployment is entitled to prior service credit upon depositing in the annuity savings fund the contributions which would have been deducted from the teacher’s compensation had he or she remained a member with interest as set forth in section 1944 of this title. The teacher, in order to qualify for the prior service credit, shall also deposit in the pension accumulation fund a sum equal to the contributions which would have been contributed by the state had the teacher remained a member with interest as set forth in section 1944 of this title.
