Catoosa County Board of Education provides a comprehensive benefits package for all eligible employees.

The Benefits Enrollment Guide is designed to give you the information and details you need to better understand your benefits choices. Also, it is designed to be used in conjunction with the State Health Benefit Plan Active Employee Decision Guide.

Please monitor your initial paychecks after employment and each year in December and January after Open Enrollment to make sure the deductions you expect are included. If not, contact the Benefits Coordinator immediately. We can correct most problems that are found immediately but not the ones that are noticed months later.

You will find two benefit enrollment packets:

  • 2020 Benefit Enrollment Packet
  • 2021 Open Enrollment Packet
