Employee Benefits

Habersham County School District offers a comprehensive employee benefits package.  

Employee benefits are a very important part of the total employment package you receive – employer paid benefits add an additional 30% or more of your salary to your overall total compensation from the district. The Board of Education is committed to continually reviewing and evaluating employee benefits and each individual type of insurance to ensure employees have the best coverage available at the lowest cost for themselves and their families.
