We offer a comprehensive employee benefits package for full-time regular staff that includes the following:


Medical
The District offers medical benefits through CalPERS with choices from various HMO and PPO plans.

Dental and Vision
The District pays for dental coverage through Sun Life PPO and United Concordia and Delta Care USA PMI.  Vision coverage through VSP is paid by JCSD for employees only.

Retirement
Retirement for current CalPERS members is 2.7% at 55 formula.  For employees hired after 7/1/14, 5% of the employee's portion paid for by the District. If you are a new member with CalPERS you would receive the 2% at 62 formula, with employee contributions.

Deferred Compensation
District employees can participate in a 457 (b) deferred compensation plan through CalPERS 457 or Nationwide.  These plans are completely voluntary to set aside additional supplemental retirement income.

Life Insurance
Life insurance of $50,000 is 100% paid by the District. Supplemental plans are available.

Disability
Short term disability is offered at 66 2/3 benefit as well as long term disability.  Supplemental voluntary plans are available through Colonial and Aflac.

Employee Assistance
Employee Assistance program is available through The Standard.

Uniforms
If your position requires you to wear a uniform, it will be paid for by JCSD.

Paid Holidays
The District observes 11 holidays per year, plus two floating holidays.

Vacation
Employees can earn up to 25 vacation days per year based on years of service.

Sick Leave
The District provides 12 sick days per year.

Alternative Work Week
An alternative work week enables employees to integrate their work and personal lives more effectively and better manage issues such as commuting, continuing education, caregiving, child care, and other external obligations.  The District is on a 9/80 schedule, which enables employees to complete working 80 hours over nine days, therefore taking what would have been the 10th work day as a day off (every other Friday).
