Lexington Employee Assistance Plan

LEAP 2015

LEAP is funded solely by donations made by Lexington County School District One Employees during the two week LEAP Campaign enrollment period held at the beginning of each school year.

LEAP offers financial assistance and/or in-kind services to Lexington County School District One full-time and permanent employees (not to include substitutes) during a crisis situation through the Employee Crisis Fund. Through the We Care Fund, LEAP provides funds to enhance the learning experience of Lexington County School District One students and families experiencing a crisis situation or students in need of medical, dental, or optometric services that prevent the student from learning.

The Educational Foundation has designated LexLeads, LexLearns, and LexLives, components of our Schools of the Future - Now! initiative, as it’s priorities with emphasis on preparing graduates to compete in the marketplace of tomorrow, both locally and globally.

Employee Crisis Fund

Employee Crisis Fund offers financial and/or in-kind services to Lexington School District One permanent full-time and permanent part-time employees (not to include substitutes) during a serious illness or financial hardship. Services exclude any payments for housing/housing insurance, vehicle purchases/vehicle insurance, and security deposits. Worker’s compensation recipients are ineligible for assistance.

Employees can obtain an application from their LEAP Site Representative. An application can be submitted by a person on behalf of the employee. Employees may not nominate themselves.

We Care Fund

We Care Fund provides funds to enhance the learning experience of students in need of medical, dental, or optometric services that prevent the student from learning and to include emergency funding for basic student needs. This does not include payments for housing/housing insurance, vehicle purchases/vehicle insurance, or security deposits.

Site Representatives, Guidance Counselors & School Nurses will have necessary application forms. Site Representative names are listed.
