Benefit Information

Sioux Falls School District wanted to provide their District staff with the best possible combination of benefit options to meet their ongoing needs and those of their families. A core package of benefits was designed to provide District staff with access to superior health and dental care benefits and income protection (retirement benefits, group term life, AD&D, Long Term Disability).  Our objective is to provide:

  • The largest possible network of doctors and dentists so that in-network benefits were available across the board, regardless of where staff live and work. This means that your out-of-pocket costs for care are kept as low as possible.

  • Top-quality customer care. Your satisfaction with your benefits, and with the level of care you receive when you call with questions, is important to us and to the carriers we chose.

  • Choice in the level of benefits that Staff have available to them. We understand that one size does not necessarily “fit all.”

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Dad and his kids

Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) Leave

FMLA allows eligible employees to take up to twelve (12) work weeks of unpaid, job-protected leave during a defined twelve-month period for particular medical and family reasons.

Another benefit of the act is that it also requires group health insurance coverage to be maintained while an eligible employee is taking leave.

The District will comply with the provisions of the FMLA and any rights or benefits contained within working agreements that exceed any right or benefits contained in the FMLA. FMLA-approved leave shall occur concurrently with any/all applicable paid leave policies granted pursuant to the respective working agreement.
