New Employees
New employees will receive a benefits packet the same day they finalize their new hire paperwork. Each new employee has 30 days, from the date of employment, to complete their benefit packet, and submit the completed information to the Benefits Office located at the Waxahachie ISD administration building. Participation in the healthcare benefits will be effective on either (1) an employee’s active day of employment or (2) the first of the month following the active day of employment. Most supplemental insurance benefits will be effective on the first of the month following 30 days of employment.

Should a new employee choose not to enroll within the initial 30 day signup, the next opportunity for enrollment will be during the "Annual Open Enrollment" which occurs once a year - once in the summer - with an insurance effective date of September 1st. Certain special events such as a change in marital status, dependent status or employment status of an employee or spouse, may qualify for an exception to this rule. Contact the Benefits Office for further clarification.
