    A         All the forms are available on the district website under “files and documents” and then “employee information”.   Please print what you need, complete the form and return interoffice to Kathleen Valentino.   The District cannot offer advice on how you complete these tax forms, so plan to speak with your personal tax consultant.

            I have a question about the health insurance plans available to me?

    A         Your labor unit’s contract references your base health insurance plan; however, other options are available and can also be accessed on the district’s website under “health insurance rates”.   Please contact Kathleen Valentino for more detailed information.         I want to add a family member to my health insurance?

    A         You need to complete a health insurance change form.   Please contact Kathleen Valentino - 1006  and request which plan you currently participate in, so she can forward the correct document to be completed.

    Q         I am retiring and want to “close out” and submit a claim for unused sick/vacation day?

    A         Once you’ve worked your last work day, Carly Jacobsen provides your final unused attendance balances to payroll to process any contractual payments due you.   This is normally done in the payroll following your final pay.
