A part-time contracted educator will be given a benefit package as follows: All benefits are to be prorated in relationship to the fractional nature of the contract. Insurance benefits (medical, surgical, extended care, dependent death and employee death) are available, effective 23 January 1984, as follows:
The district and worker’s compensation already covers an educator when in the course of his employment he might be injured as a result of an accident. In the event that an educator may make application to the superintendent of schools for reimbursement. If the item damaged or destroyed is covered by the educator’s insurance, the amount paid by the insurance company will be deducted from the claim.
The Board of Education will provide to the educators of the district a term life insurance policy in the amount of $20,000 (Educators Mutual Insurance will provide $15,000 double indemnity/accidental death/dismemberment and the Board of Education will provide $5,000). The premium on this policy will be paid by the school district.
The school district and the association representatives, as in past years, will review annually the group insurance policy coverage. Any changes in coverage and/or adjustments to meet current medical and hospital charges or needs, shall be agreed to by both the association and the school district before any changes will be affected. Once the extent of the coverage has been agreed to, the decision of whom the insurance carrier shall be will be decided by the Board of Education.
Full-time contracted educators are provided a medical, surgical, and extended health insurance program as a fringe benefit. Employees new to the district and those wishing to make open enrollment changes will be offered the district insurance. Educators must make application and qualify within 30 days of the start of regular contracted service to receive coverage.
