Information for Local School Board Employees
The Kentucky Department of Education (KDE) funds the state paid benefits for the Local School Board Employees for Health Insurance, Life Insurance, Administrative Fees, Health Reimbursement Accounts (HRA) and the Administrative Fee for the Flexible Spending Accounts. KDE pays the state premiums for these benefits to the Department of Employee Insurance (DEI) on a monthly basis on behalf of the Local School Board Employees.
