      Health Insurance Update for July 1, 2019

    On March 26th the Board of Education approved a 10% overall increase in health insurance rates.  This is an increase to the overall premium, not the specific amount the employee pays.  In most cases, the employee cost is increasing more than 10%.  This change is effective July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.  This increase was recommended by the Superintendent and the Insurance Committee.  Click here for more information about the upcoming increase.
