  • Pension Plan  (4 comments)

    “Is part of the State of Maryland Retirement System, vested after 5 years of employment, can draw full benefits after 30 years employment regardless...”

  • Health Insurance  (3 comments)

    “It covers a lot of different things. With the plan I chose, I had a very small co-pay, which was a welcomed change from my previous insurance.”

    I am not an expert on the benefits package, but I know I have an extremely low co-pay whenever I go to the doctor or specialist, and people often talk about how the only reason they are still teaching in the city is because of the benefits.

    Benefits are great that is one plus of this school system. You and your family will definitely be covered that’s how they lure you in but that is about the only good thing about this job

    The best part is having the option to go to any doctor of my choice. The worst thing if I would have to say would be having to wait a whole year to make changes.

    There are many benefits options and the school systems pays for in total vision and dental with the option of buy up plans. Your benefits are also only spread over the 21 pays during the school year, so if you choose a 12 month pay option, benefits are not taken out during the summer.

    Several types of health insurance offered. There is general, vision, and dental. There are also different rates for your 401k. Overall, it was okay as a package, but it wasn't spectacular.

    Best thing was health and dental insurance. I chose the BCBS PPO option and it covered everything with a very low deductible and co-pays. Worst part was vision insurance, barely useful for me as I need both contacts and frames plus have low vision and astigmatism in both eyes.

    Health Insurance package is excellent and mostly paid by employer, retirement package is also good (State of Maryland retirement system), have option to participate in 403 B plans in addition to regular retirement package

    Great pay growth opportunities. Great health insurance. Great retirement plan options. Set vacation times--keep in mind that teachers get a lot of time off (you can choose 10-month pay or 12-month pay), but the time off teachers receive is actually more like comp time due to the extreme overtime hours.
