Benefits in addition to basic salary are recognized by the Board as an integral part of the total compensation plan for support staff members. The benefits extended to regular full-time support staff members will be designed to promote the economic security of those employees.


The Board of Education shall provide fringe benefits to all full-time support staff employees by offering participation in a group insurance plan. Any plan of group health insurance shall include a provision allowing person who retire, or who have retired, to become members of the plan if they are eligible to receive benefits under the Public Education Employee Retirement System (PEERS), by paying premiums at the same rate as other members of the group, pursuant to the limitations set forth in  169.590, RSMo.


At the time of commencement of coverage under the plan, an employee shall be given his or her first notification of rights under the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). Further notification is contingent upon the occurrence of a qualifying event and, in applicable situations, notification to the district that a qualifying event has occurred, as required by law.
