Here's a brief summary of the insurance and retirement benefits:
Employees and their families are covered by dental and vision insurance, as well as basic life and long-term disability insurance plans. Medical insurance is offered as an optional benefit to employees who have, at minimum, a half time position. Additional insurance coverage is available at special group rates.
Employees have an excellent state retirement plan regulated by WA State Department of Retirement Systems. In addition, the district offers optional retirement programs such as a 457 Deferred Compensation Plan and 403b Tax Sheltered Annuities.
