While the benefits are ok, the amount of money per year is on the low side due to many unpaid days off through out the school year and summer off with no pay and no unemployment insurance for the summer.
TRS for retirement Medical insurance has high co-pays Pay raise often used to cover higher cost of insurance each year Great vacation days You have to use vacation days for maternity leave, then are not compensated for additional days
Blue Cross Blue Shield used to be one of the better insurance companies. RRISD should consider other options. I am going to have to pay out of pocket for surgeon, because the entire greater Austin area of nearly 2 million people doesn't have a doctor that takes our insurance that does needed procedure for my child.
Best thing is that it's fairly comprehensive. The lack of maternity leave is awful. Have to go on disability.
Deductibles are high and family coverage is expensive. You have a deductible of 6000.00 before your full coverage kicks in. The insurance for the employee does not cost anything. You pay extra for dental and eye coverage.
There were no benefit packages.
Increasingly less supportive with prohibitive deductibles and horrendous coverage.
Health benefits are above average but need more dental benefits.
Having any kind of health insurance at all.
Time off is the best perk of any teaching job, and RRISD is no different. The insurance is so-so. God help you if you have an emergency before you qualify for FMLA leave.
