Our section is responsible for overseeing three key areas that include:  Employee and student safety including accident investigation, property and casualty insurance programs, student athletic insurance, workers' compensation, and return-to-work program, claim and litigation management, employee occupational health program, and playground inspection and approval.


Benefits provide information and services related to core pre-tax benefit programs such as insurance plans and services which include, medical, dental, vision, employee basic life, disability, and flexible spending accounts. Additionally, you will find information on voluntary after-tax benefit programs such as supplemental employee, spouse, and dependent life, short and long-term disability plans. Saving for the future is available through Tax Sheltered Investment (TSA/403(b)/Special Retirement 401(a) plans.

Wellness seeks to establish a workplace that encourages and supports a healthy lifestyle by integrating health promotion activities and resources that help to enhance health & well-being. Our goal is to keep people healthy, reduce the risk factors among at-risk members and improve the health of those who already have chronic conditions by encouraging them to make lifestyle changes. To do this we give employees easy access to the resources needed to make well-informed decisions about their health and health care.
