Great health benefits available or you can take cash payout. Lots of time off but this is unpaid. No paid holidays. No work in the summer
Working in a TPS charter school as been a great experience
Teacher salaries are comparable to other large districts' in spite of lack of funding by the State. Health, dental and vision insurance are offered, as well as a 403(b) savings plan for educators.
Worst thing - Benefits are not communicated well. Best thing is vein going able to have a Health Savings Account and put in funds pretax.
Choice of health care options. 2 are free and others are hmo's at various prices. Cost for spouse and/or dependents is extremely high. Vision
School/ State pay employee only medical insurance, but you have to pay family which is over $1000 per month deducted from pay which would leave $2300 to pay bills if I took the plan. Beginning or less experienced teachers have $1400-2000 left on their check if they enroll their families in the medical insurance. The teacher pension deduction from our paycheck takes 7% of monthly the check. Then there is all the taxes we pay. I am retiring at the if the school year.
The best thing about the benefits package is the the highest package is free to you but it is really expensive for your family, and the downside is is every package is really expensive for everyone.
Benefits were expensive for the employee. There were a variety of providers which was good.
You get all insurances available.
The benefits are a joke. Teachers are basically right above the poverty line. The retirement is good but you have to have taught for 30-40 years for it to even be worth it.
