Tahlequah Schools’ Non-Discrimination Statement

It is the policy of the Tahlequah Board of Education District 1035 that no person shall on the grounds of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital or veteran status, or qualified disability be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any education programs, activities, services, or in admissions, financial aid, recruitment, consideration, selection or employment whether full-time or part-time, or any other activity for which the Board of Education is responsible.

2018 Option Period Information

Below is the 2018 Option Period information. Personalized Option Period Enrollment/Change forms for employees currently enrolled in insurance through the school will be delivered to your site in the coming weeks.

If you do not wish to make any changes to your Health/Dental/Vision/Life insurance, you must complete this form and mark “No Change” on each benefit you are currently enrolled in and sign. Due to the regulations of the Affordable Care Act, we must have an option period form returned for every employee eligible to receive health insurance from the District. If you are a full-time employee not currently enrolled in insurance through the school, a blank Option Period Enrollment/Change form will be provided at your request.

The deadline for returning Option Period Enrollment Forms to our office is Friday October 27, 2017. The effective date for changes is January 1, 2018.

If you choose to waive health coverage, you are required to sign a new Waiver of Health Coverage form.

If you are enrolled in a HealthChoice High or HealthChoice Basic health plan, you must complete the Tobacco Free Attestation by November 13, 2017. You may access the attestation at  https://www.ok.gov/sib/Tobacco_Free.html. 

A quick guide to the 2018 changes along with a 2018 rate chart are attached for your convenience.
