A comprehensive benefits package is just one of the many reasons to consider working at Nevada Joint Union High School District!
 
Our District participates in a large Joint Powers Agency, California's Valued Trust (CVT). Through a cafeteria plan, employees may choose from various High Deductible PPO, PPO and HMO Blue Shield medical plans. Kaiser medical plans are also available to our employees who reside in Kaiser eligible coverage areas. We also participate in a dental plan through Delta Dental, a vision plan through Vision Service Plan (VSP) and have life insurance coverage through MetLife. If you need further details on any of our medical plans, click here to go to CVT, or contact our CVT Representative, Amber Duncan, at amberd@cvtrust.org / 1-800-288-9870.
 
Certificated and Classified Employees
The district offers full time certificated and classified employees (7+ hours/day) participation in the district benefit plan by providing from $659 to $1194 per month in tiered caps towards coverage. Part-time certificated employees may participate in the district plan if they work at least a 3/5ths teaching schedule, and classified if they work at least 4 hours/day, however they are required to pay a pro-rated portion of the health and welfare premium. Click on the link at the bottom of this page to see the tiered caps and the "out of pocket" cost to full time employees based on their plan and how many dependents they choose to cover.
 
Part-time Certificated Employees:
3/5ths (three periods per day) – district contribution is 60% of benefit cap
4/5ths (four periods per day) – district contribution is 80% of benefit cap
 
Part time Classified Employees:
4.0 hours/day – 4.99 hours/day, district contribution is 50% of benefit cap
