North Shore's retirement plan is organized through TIAA-CREF and is mandatory for all eligible employees. The joint annual employee/North Shore contribution is a constant 12% of salary with the employee’s share of the contribution decreasing based on years of service from a high of 6% to a low of 2%. Additionally, TIAA-CREF provides basic retirement/financial counseling to its participants.
Employees are offered their choice of one of three Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois health plans (Blue Print PPO, Blue Advantage HMO or BlueEdge HSA) as well as one of two Guardian Dental Insurance plans (Dental PPO or Dental DHMO). North Shore works to keep employee deductibles, premiums and co-payments low.
Full-time faculty are eligible for tuition remission at 100% for their 1st child, 50% for their 2nd child, and 33% for each subsequent child enrolled. Part-time faculty/staff remission is prorated according to the FTE percentage employed.
North Shore provides regular support for faculty professional enrichment including grants to attend workshops and conferences and to support special projects. As well, North Shore assists select faculty with their graduate education, funding up to 80% of the cost. Additionally, North Shore sponsors a sabbatical program that pays one-third salary for a full year’s leave or full salary for a trimester’s leave. Finally, North Shore’s Benefit Board provides support for Summer Grants.
The Vera D. Wavering Sabbatical was established to renew the spirit, invigorate teaching and enhance the School community. The program is open to teachers and administrators. Sabbaticals are available for a full year, semester or part-time commitment. Plans can include study, teaching, travel, or a special project, and should have the potential to enrich not only the recipient, but also the wider School community.
North Shore equips faculty with a school-owned MacBook Pro and iPad to support their teaching. Employees may also finance the purchase of a personal computer at no interest to be repaid through payroll.
