Everyone needs the security of knowing they can get help when they need it.  That's what benefits were designed for.  Benefits are a form of compensation paid by employers to employees over and above the amount of base salary or hourly rate of pay. Benefits are a portion of a total compensation package for employees.  ISD #761 – Owatonna Public Schools provides a comprehensive benefits package, which includes health, dental, life, and long-term disability insurance; as well as flexible spending, retirement and an employee assistance program.  Each employee group contract details eligibility requirements and District contributions for benefits.   

Benefits can be overwhelming and confusing so the resources below are intended to assist employees in choosing, understanding, and using their benefits to their full potential.
