Board OKs software to meet ACA requirements
Excerpt reposted from TheTandD.com
Trustees in Orangeburg Consolidated School District Four recently unanimously approved implementation of Aesop, a software program designed to meet requirements of the Affordable Care Act.
Assistant Superintendent Tim Newman reported that the software… is the least expensive way to track information and produce monthly reports required by the federal government. He said he consulted other districts and found that 18 of them are already implementing Aesop. Districts that have decided to employ additional personnel to keep up with the requirements are paying up to $4 a year, Newman said.
He said districts are required to offer health insurance to part-time employees who work more than 30 hours a week during a six-month period.
To ensure that districts are following this policy, they are required to track the time that substitutes work, Newman said.
