10 if salary received for overtime, summer school, and other
11 optional service had been included in the calculation of

15 contributions are picked up or made by the Board of Education
16 on behalf of its employees from the proceeds of the tax
17 levied under Section 34-60 of the School Code, then the
18 amount of the employee contributions which are picked up or

20 of such employees.
