     1  service  commission. In addition to the payment of supplementary salary,
     2  a board of cooperative educational services may provide for the  payment
     3  of  all  or a portion of the cost of insurance benefits for the district
     4  superintendent  of  schools,  including but not limited to health insur-
     5  ance, disability insurance, life insurance or any other form  of  insur-
     6  ance  benefit made available to managerial/confidential employees of the
     7  state; provided that any such payments for whole life, split  dollar  or
     8  other  life  insurance policies having a cash value shall be included in
     9  the total salary of the district superintendent  for  purposes  of  this
    10  subparagraph,  and  provided  further that any payments for the employee
    11  contribution, co-pay or uncovered medical expenses under a health insur-
    12  ance plan also shall be included in the total  salary  of  the  district

    17  actual,  documented  expenses  incurred in the performance of duties for

    21  the  district  superintendent for purposes of this subparagraph. Nothing
    22  herein shall prohibit a district superintendent from waiving any  rights
    23  provided for in an existing contract or agreement as hereafter prohibit-
    24  ed  in  favor of revised compensation or benefit provisions as permitted
    25  herein. In no event shall the terms  of  the  district  superintendent's
    26  contract,  including  any  provisions relating to an increase in salary,
    27  compensation or other benefits, be contingent  upon  the  terms  of  any
    28  contract or collective bargaining agreement between the board of cooper-
    29  ative  educational  services  and  its  teachers or other employees. The
    30  commissioner may adopt regulations for the purpose of  implementing  the
    31  provisions of this paragraph.
