Our district offers the following benefits to all employees working over part-time/over 50% of a full-time equivalent (FTE) prorated according to their FTE: SISC III - Anthem Blue Cross PPO health insurance, Delta Dental insurance, VSP vision insurance, SISC sponsored pre-tax Health Savings and Dependent Savings Accounts, and Retirement Saving Plan services through Schools First Federal Credit Union.
The district contributes to health and dental insurance only. The current negotiated district benefit cap for any given year can be found in the annual Benefits Guide for that year (link on the left-hand side of the webpage). The employee is responsible for any annual premium amount over the current negotiated cap. All other insurance plans offered are 100% voluntary and employee paid.
The only time plan changes for medical, dental, or vision insurance can be made is during the open enrollment period unless the employee experiences an eligible life event such as the birth or adoption of a new child, death of a dependent, marriage, or divorce. Open enrollment periods for each insurance plan differ as show below:
Open enrollment for medical, dental, and vision plans is in May of every year with an effective change date of October 1st. Effective May 2022 open-enrollment will be handled digitally through the EASE online platform. Please review the Ease video tutorial prior to accessing or navigating the system. This system will also be used to report life events such as marriage, divorce, or the birth of a new baby, etc.
