Health & Welfare
Sanger Unified School District offers a comprehensive health and welfare package to all employees who work more than 30 hours per week. This coverage is effective after six months of employment and is also for spouses and dependents up to age 26 at no additional charge.
The District contributes $11,000 to each qualified Classified employee’s health and welfare package. Employees pay from $200 to $650 monthly depending on individual choices, which are deducted from the monthly paycheck.
Medical insurance is provided through Anthem Blue Cross, which also includes prescription drug coverage and an employee assistance program. Also included is Delta Dental insurance and vision care through Vision Service Plan (VSP). Employees can choose their level of coverage within the medical and dental plans. Term life insurance is provided for the employee. Term life insurance for spouse and dependents can be purchased separately through American Fidelity.
All employees in permanent positions receive paid vacation, paid holidays and sick leave. Employees working less than 12 months per year receive paid vacation in the form of monetary pay added to their salary.
Permanent employees are members of the California Public Employees Retirement System, or CalPERS, which provides a variety of retirement programs and services dedicated to protecting the financial security of members including retirement benefits, disability benefits and death benefits.
