Insurance package comes with bonus for school administrators

FPS staff report

Administrators in the Carrollton Exempted Village School District will be enrolled in the same health insurance plan as members of the Carrollton Education Association (CEA).

In what the board called a cost-savings measure, four of the five members passed a resolution to move the superintendent, treasurer, building principals and assistant principals, the director of programs, director of special services, school psychologist and EMIS coordinator to the plan effective Jan. 1, 2013. The action was taken during a special meeting held Nov. 19, Board President Rose Seck was not in attendance at the meeting. Members Bonnie Little, Helen Skinner, Mike Pozderac and Wendy Gotschall voted “yes” on the resolution.

Under the new PPO plan, enrollees will have a 10 percent co-pay for basic and major medical expenses instead of five percent and the deductible will be increased from $400 to $500 per covered person and from $800 to $900 per covered family. The prescription benefits remain the same.

The board then voted to grant a $600 bonus to each of the 12 administrators, to be paid by Dec. 15. Members of the CEA received a $600 bonus for approving a contract that included a wage freeze. The resolution stated the board “desired to treat the affected administrators in a manner that is equitable to its other similarly affected employees.”
