The Eudora School District offers a comprehensive health insurance plan to all eligible employees. To be eligible to participate in the district's health insurance plan, you must work a minimum of 20 hours per week. All employees who are currently contributing to KPERS are required to have health insurance coverage through the district, or provide proof of coverage elsewhere. All employees who are covered under the negotiated agreement are required to participate in the district's health insurance plan, or provide proof of coverage under a spouse's plan.
Health Defined Benefit
Each year, the rate of the employer health defined benefit is negotiated. Currently, that amount is $450 towards any plan. If the amount of your premium is less than the health defined benefit, you may use the excess amount to apply towards your dental and vision benefits. The Eudora School District also has a comprehensive wellness plan. Incentives may be earned to help decrease the cost of your monthly premiums. For more information on the wellness plan, visit the employee wellness portion of the website. Our plan year runs from October 1st-September 30th. Open enrollment for the district's cafeteria plan, including health insurance occurs during the month of August. If an employee does not enroll in coverage during the open enrollment, the employee must have a qualifying event in order to enroll. If you think you may be eligible to enroll in benefits due to a change in life circumstances, please contact Amy Shanks.
