Insurance & Retirement
All employees who are anticipated to work 630 hours or more, or who during the course of the school year reach 630 hours worked, are eligible for benefits offered through the School Employees Benefits Board (SEBB), administered by the state of Washington. Employees not making a selection within 31 days of becoming eligible (or those not waiving coverage within 31 days of becoming eligible) will be automatically enrolled in a basic employee-only (no dependents) medical/dental/vision package at a cost of $58/month.
Due to COVID-19, employees who were eligible for benefits on 2/29/2020 will maintain their eligibility during the Governor's State of Emergency, even if they are not anticipated to work 630 hours or more during the 2020-21 school year.
A variety of medical plans are available dependent on your county of residence or employment. Supplemental offerings are also provided for life insurance and long-term disability beyond the state-provided coverage.

Employees have an excellent state retirement plan regulated by the Washington State Department of Retirement Systems.
Optional retirement programs such as a 457 Deferred Compensation Plan and 403b Tax Sheltered Annuities are also offered by the district.
