    the worst thing is Health Insurance going high, and no overtime for workers making sure maitenance workers always have all supplies to work with and clean with. its not acceptable for workers to do wrong neither like come in late fake cleaning and try to say you did the work when someone else did it,

    You have three choices of companies for insurance, and most of them have two or three options from there. DCPS does not pay into Social Security, but you do get a pension instead.

    The company provides a very comprehensive benefits package. Not only do they provide the usual assortment of health, vision and dental but they provide additional employee benefits as well.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Washington, District of Columbia

    Best: Great benefits with respect to 403B and 457. Worst. There is only one person doing 403b's and 457 so the service is not good. Retirement help is not professional or on target as the staff in central office have too many clients and not enough time to do the job properly.

    Must stay for five years to be fully vested in retirement matching. After one year, you are not vested at all.

    District of Columbia Public Schools provides a great benefit package for employees and teachers. However, it is hard to connect with human resource employees on the phone.

    Great coverage from a national provider, including vision and dental through the Teachers' Union. No concerns regarding in-network coverage, and ease of use when visiting specialists.
