Remuneration, Health and Welfare Benefits

Each member of the County Board of Education may choose one of the following options:

1. $300 per month and may choose single coverage dental and/or vision paid by SCOE.

2. $50 per meeting and must enroll in single medical coverage paid by SCOE.

Board members may choose to pay for dependent coverage.

County Board members are not required to accept payment for meetings attended.

Members may be paid for meetings they missed when the County Board, by resolution, finds that they were performing designated services for the County Office at the time of the meeting or that they were absent because of illness, jury duty, or a hardship deemed acceptable by the County Board. (Education Code 1090, 35120)

Reimbursement of Expenses

County Board members shall be reimbursed for traveling expenses incurred when so authorized in advance by the County Board. (Education Code 35044)

The rate of reimbursement shall be the same rate specified for County Office personnel.

(cf. 3350 - Travel Expenses)

(cf. 9240 - Board Development)

Benefits for Retired Board Members

Any members whose first term of office began on or after January 1, 1995, and any other members retiring from the County Board after at least one term, may continue the health and welfare benefits program at their own expense if coverage is in effect at the time of retirement. (Government Code 53201)

The County Office shall pay health insurance premiums for retired County Board members who served in office after January 1, 1981, who have served a total of 12 years or more, and who serves in office after January 15, 1982, for only as long as the Board member requests such coverage and maintains continuous coverage through SCOE. These payments shall be made to the same extent that they were being made before January 1, 1994, and under the same terms. The County Board may grant the same or a lesser benefit upon retirement to current County Board members, provided that they served 12 years or more on the County Board, and provided that their first term began before January 1, 1995. This benefit shall not be granted to County Board members whose first term of office began on or after January 1, 1995.

Members of the Stanislaus County Board of Education who serve office after January 15, 1982, that have at least four years, but less than 12 years of service, may continue to receive health insurance, dental insurance, and vision insurance if they agree to and do pay the full cost of the benefits and maintains continuous coverage through the Stanislaus County Department of Education.

County Superintendent's Retirement Benefits

Stanislaus County Office of Education will pay the cost of health insurance, dental insurance and vision insurance for County Superintendents of Schools only, that have completed eight or more years as Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools and begin receiving retirement benefits from the State Teachers Retirement System within six months of completion of service as Stanislaus County Superintendent of Schools for as long as the retired Superintendent requests such coverage and maintains continuous coverage through the Stanislaus County Department of Education.
