time for districts to slash health care costs

Insurance has one simple rule: the larger the risk pool, the lower the cost.

It's time for Washington's school districts to save millions of dollars for themselves and their employees by joining the state's health insurance system.

The same coverage for a fraction of the cost.

The downside, primarily, would be less flexibility for some. But the upside, the saved money and jobs, would be far, far greater.

If your district hasn't signed up, maybe it's time.

That's right, Olympia School District and Olympia Education Association. It's time.
