  • Health Insurance(5 comments)

    Very expensive if you have a family to support.

  • Retirement Plan(3 comments)

    You can choose a traditional pension plan, but it takes 8 years to get vested. There is also a 403 (like a 401(k) for government workers) that you are vested in after only 1 year. I would not recommend the pension plan as I doubt many would be around long enough to vest. It is part of the Florida Retirement System (FRS) so it would follow you to other government jobs in Florida.

Even as a temporary employee, they contributed to retirement.

Vision insurance is good, but the family health insurance plan for me and my wife costs $430/per paycheck

There are no benefits as a guest teacher, except for a small FRA that you put into, but they put nothing into.

Health insurance quality and cost has decreased since I started working for the district approximately 10 years ago. What used to be a benefit that helped to make up for the lack of salary, is now a cost greater than that offered by other employers.

Almost free benefits. With the best package it is cheap and low out of pocket.

Great benefit package. Dental and vision are not too expensive. There is a medical stipend that is used to cover most of the cost.
