Welcome to the Employee Benefits Information Page

Habersham County School District provides employees with a comprehensive benefits package.  

Employee benefits can be a very important part of the total employment package you receive – and employer paid benefits may add an additional 30% or more of your salary to your total compensation from the district.  As a school district, several of the benefits we offer are developed and administered by the State of Georgia and rules are set in state law.  Personnel must meet all eligibility requirements to receive benefits. 

The State Health Benefit Plan (SHBP), managed by the Georgia Department of Community Health, is the health insurance coverage option for all eligible certified and classified employees of the school system.

The HCSD Voluntary Employee Benefit Package for all active, eligible employees is comprised of:  Short Term Disability, Long Term Disability, Voluntary Group Term Life Insurance, Permanent Life Insurance, Vision Insurance, Cancer & Critical Illness Insurance, Flexible Spending Accounts (Medical & Dependent Care), and Dental Insurance.  

The HCSD Board of Education is committed to continually reviewing and evaluating employee benefits and each individual type of insurance to ensure that our employees have the best coverage available at the lowest cost for themselves and their families.
