There is no automatic enrollment in the dental plan.  The member will have to contact Johnson Insurance to register in the plan.  Once you join the plan you must stay in the plan for a minimum of one full year.  The plan starts on October 1st each year.  Payments are made a month in advance.  If the member joins the plan at the first of the school year and gets dental work done before October 1st it will not be covered by the plan.    

The dental plan is not available for substitute teachers, retired teachers, or teachers on a fixed term contract for less than a full year.  If a full year fixed term teacher does not get a contract for the next year in the early spring their coverage will end on June 30th
