12. Health coverage eligibility only for employees who work at least half-time (effective 7-1-2012)

Suggestion
Offer health coverage eligibility only for employees who work at least half-time (effective 7-1-2012) .   Rather than having health insurance for all employees regardless of hours scheduled in the workday, create a minimum level of hours to be eligible for health insurance.
 
Response
This is a model that is utilized in many other districts throughout the country.  This suggestion will be studied to ascertain the amount saved prior to taking through the collective bargaining process with the employee associations.
