Crawford County R-II School District Board Policies


P 4511 Support Staff Fringe Benefits

Benefits in addition to basic salary are recognized by the Board as an integral part of the total compensation plan for support staff members. The benefits extended to regular full time support staff members will be designed to promote the economic security of those employees.

The Board of Education shall provide fringe benefits to all full time support staff employees, including full time bus drivers, by offering participation in a group insurance plan. The contract for insurance will be submitted to competitive bidding at least every three (3) years. Any plan of group health insurance shall include a provision allowing persons who retire, or who have retired to become members of the plan if they are eligible to receive benefits under the non-teacher retirement system, by paying premiums at the same rate as other members of the group.

The noncertificated employee shall be entitled to a District-paid, prorated health insurance benefit. The prorated share will be determined by dividing the employee’s actual work hours by what is considered full time for that position. The employee would be expected to pay the health insurance portion not paid by the district. This is a voluntary program and the employee is not required to participate in the health insurance program. The noncertificated employee with less than twenty (20) hours per week, shall not be entitled to prorated insurance. (Employees with less than twenty (20) hours per week employeed prior to June 6, 1996, who have elected to have prorated insurance will be grandfathered.)

At the time of initial employment an employee shall be given his/her first COBRA notification. Second notification and continuation of benefits is contingent upon the employee notifying the District of qualifying event.
