Benefits for Full Time Employees


Equitas Academy believes in a total compensation package and offers highly competitive benefits for full-time employees (30+ hours per week) and their families, including medical, dental, vision and life insurance plans. We support employees who want choice and affordable health care benefits for their whole family.


Medical Plans

We know that employees have different needs and preferences for medical care. We offer a choice of medical plans: Kaiser Gold, Kaiser Platinum, Blue Shield HMO and Blue Shield PPO.

Dental Plans

  • We offer a choice of an EPO plan or POS (includes EPO, PPO, and out-of-network coverage) through Principal.

Vision Plan

  • We have an optional Vision plan through VSP.

Life Insurance

  • All full-time employees receive group-term life insurance through Principal.
  • Employees may purchase additional voluntary life insurance for themselves, their spouse or their children at low costs.


Other Employee Benefits

  • Flexible spending account for healthcare
  • Flexible spending account for dependent care
  • 403b retirement plan which can be tailored to each individual employee's needs. We offer a dollar for dollar match up to 3% of salary for our employees who do not have Cal-STRS benefits.

Employee perks

Equitas Academy believes strongly in the development and growth of our staff. All employees have a coach that helps guide their development through weekly meetings and observations. Some of the development options we offer are:


  • New Teacher Coaching
  • Instructional coaching for all teachers
  • BTSA
  • Leadership opportunities for teachers
  • Weekly professional development
  • Four weeks of professional development in August before the school year begins


In addition, Equitas Academy’s teachers and staff seek to embody our Core Values of Curiosity, Gratitude, Grit, Joy, Optimism, Professionalism and Teamwork by creating a work environment that celebrates each other through monthly employee recognition awards and daily and weekly “shout outs.” We know the work is hard and the day is long, and we want all of our employees to feel appreciated.
