The insurance program for all school personnel who are eligible shall be determined by the annual school budget as first approved by the Board of Education.
There may be years in which the amount determined by the Board to be set aside for personnel insurance benefit will not equal the total amount required by the coverage carrier. The employee must pay the difference or elect not to participate in the program; election not to participate must be approved by the Board.
If the employee elects not to take the Board benefit, the Board is not obligated to reimburse the employee an equal amount of the benefit not taken.
The final date for notification of participation in the health benefit by the employee is the date set by the insurance company.
Group insurance benefits are made available to full-time personnel, as defined by the District and/or the insurance provider.
