Employee Benefits

Welcome to the Rockdale County Public Schools (RCPS) Benefits Information Page! As an RCPS employee, your benefits are a very important part of the “Total Compensation Package” you receive from RCPS and may add an additional 30% of your salary to your total compensation from the district. All full-time employees working at least 20 hours per week in a benefits-eligible position are eligible to enroll in any group supplemental benefit plan offered by RCPS.

Additional benefits will be available in 2023.  Please return to this page soon for more information!
