    Good Morning GISD, 

    Last night our Board of Trustees approved the following: 

    1. Effective August 1, 2021 any staff diagnosed with COVID-19 will be given 10 additional sick days while recovering from the virus. Staff who exceed the 10 days can apply for additional sick bank days. Please contact our HR department for more information. 
    1. October 25, 2021 will be a teacher workday and student holiday. Hopefully this will give you time to catch-up on assignments in your classroom, while simultaneously allowing our custodians an opportunity to perform a deep clean on campuses. 
    1. The November Retention Stipend will be increased to $500 for all fulltime GISD employees and $250 for halftime staff. In order to be eligible staff must be hired by September 15, 2021. Contact the Business Office for more information. 

    Our board of trustees recognizes your efforts, and is appreciative of your service to GISD. If you have any questions or need more information please let me know.

  • Insurance Open Enrollment - Updated Information, Reminders, and Tips

    Posted by GISD Human Resources Dept. on 8/3/2021

    UPDATED – Important reminders and tips:

    1. On the Primary and Primary + plans, you must choose a PCP physician and will need their PCP number to complete the enrollment.  Must get a referral to see a specialist.
    2. Must have SSN’s for dependents on medical insurance.
    3. The Hospital Indemnity plan and the Accident plan will have to be re-enrolled in order to continue the coverage.  The old plans drop, and the new ones must be enrolled.  Aflac is new Accident and Aetna is new Hospital Indemnity Plan.
    4. On the American Fidelity Disability plan, when it asks for a signature at the end of the application, it is asking for their electronic signature or PIN number.  The PIN used to login (last 4 digits of SS# and last 2 digits of birth year).
    5. Flex and HSA plans must be re-enrolled, or they will not carry forward.
    6. Friday, August 20 is the last day! Don’t wait until the end! 

    First Financial representatives will be available to assist GISD employees on Monday, August 16 at the Administration Bldg.
