School boards, libraries face insurance cost hike

Posted: Updated:

ATLANTA (AP) - Georgia school boards and public libraries will have to pay more for the employer share of health insurance following a decision by the Community Health Board.

The Florida Times-Union reports (http://bit.ly/10i66z1) that the board made the unanimous decision on Thursday.

The biggest jump goes to school boards for their employees who are not teachers or administrators, such as bus drivers, custodians and lunchroom workers. The local board's share for them will rise 33%.

For charter schools and regional education service agencies, the employer share will go up by 3.5%.

Public libraries will have to pay 13.5% more for their employer share.

Other state agencies will have to pay 1% more.
