Your District, Your Benefits
District 25 offers a comprehensive benefits package to full-time/job-share employees.
There is no waiting period for coverage; you are eligible on your first date of employment. Open Enrollment is held once a year – usually in December. During this open enrollment period, you may enroll, change plans and/or add dependents. You cannot make these changes outside of the open enrollment period unless you have a qualifying "life change" event. You may drop coverage or dependents at any time during the year.
We offer four different Blue Cross/Blue Shield medical plans.
All required annual notices, information needed for enrollment, and forms are located within the BSwift on-line portal in the Document Library.
Guardian PPO or Guardian DMO
We have one vision plan - Vision Service Plan (VSP).
All benefited employees are covered by a $50,000 life insurance policy which is paid for by the District. Additional life insurance can be purchased for yourself, or life insurance for a spouse and/or children.
Using the mail order prescription program for certain maintenance type drugs, you may receive a 90 day supply for the same co-pay as a 30 day supply at the retail pharmacy.
Tax Shelter 403(b) Annuity Program
The District offers the opportunity to participate in our 403(b) program to any District employee working at least 20 hours/week.
Flexible Spending Account
This is an account in which you can elect to have money taken out of your pay check on a pre-tax basis. There are two options available, medical and dependent care, and you can select either one or both. The benefit of this plan is that you save money on income taxes, but it does require careful planning, as any unused money in the account at the end of the year is forfeited.
