The Virginia Department of Education has been offering a tuition assistance program for provisionally licensed special education teachers for many years, and because of this assistance, we have not provided any tuition reimbursement to this group of educators. Every year the VDOE publishes a memo on the terms and monetary limits on their tuition assistance program for the school year. The new VDOE Superientendent's memo was published on Friday, September 20, announcing the discontinuation of the program this year due to lack of federal funding, effective immediately. There was no prior information regarding this decision. We were not made aware of this change until the pubilication of this memo. Click here for the memo. http://www.doe.virginia.gov/administrators/superintendents_memos/2013/251-13.shtml
Please contact Jill Argueta at email@example.com or 703.791.8927 with any questions concerning tuition reimbursement.

Condition Care: COPD
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is sometimes called emphysema or chronic bronchitis. If one of your employees is diagnosed with COPD or already has it, there are things they can do to breathe easier. One step they can take is to sign up for Anthem’s ConditionCare program. It’s already part of your benefits, so there’s no added cost to join. Spread the word about the program by distributing our ConditionCare: COPD flier.
The implementation of the Affordable Care Act of 2010 (the healthcare reform law) requires the notice be sent to every employee.

The Marketplace describes options you may have available for health insurance other than employer-based plans and is designed for easy cost and coverage comparisons.
