Long-Term Disability

Income protection coverage for employees is provided. Should you become disabled, after a 60-day waiting period, the benefit payable to you is two-thirds of your monthly salary, before tax liability. Depending on your employment status, you are entitled to either a one-year benefit or up to the age of 65.

Retirement Plan

The District's employees are enrolled in either the State Teachers' Retirement System (STRS) or Public Employer's Retirement System (PERS), depending on position classification and/or prior membership. Retirement allowance is calculated on a formula based on age at retirement, number of years of service and income. Members are eligible to retire with a minimum of five years of service.

Employee Assistance Plan

The Employee Assistance Program offers family and community counseling services - employees and/or their family members can receive counseling assistance. This is completely confidential. Download Brochure

Paid Time Off

The District realizes the importance of creating a balance between work and personal life. To work at the highest ability, employees need to take time away from their job for rest, recreation, and important personal matters. To accommodate those needs, SJDC provides generous holiday and vacation schedules and sick time hours.
