Current Fiscal Year: There is a small amount of tuition reimbursement funds remaining for FY 2016. If you have taken classes toward a secondary education degree in FY 2016 and have not exhausted the $1,000 maximum allowed please submit a completed Continuing Education Reimbursement Form prior to September 30, 2016.
Next Fiscal Year: The window for FY 2017 tuition reimbursement funds opens October 1st with Continuing Education Assistance Applications accepted beginning at 8 am. Applications can be submitted via fax (904-209-0636), postal mail/interoffice, or hand delivery. If requests exceed available funds as of October 15th, a lottery will be used to determine recipients. Personnel Services will review the applications and provide a written response to the applicant indicating approval or disapproval.
The 2017 holiday schedule is now available.
Food Drive: Health and Human Services department needs your help!
Our Health and Human Services department maintains a food closet to bridge emergency meal needs for those individuals and families participating in our social services programs. The shelves are nearly bare because of the tremendous need. As a result, proteins such as peanut butter, tuna fish, canned meats, beef stew, soups and canned/packaged meals are much needed as are breakfast cereals, pasta/sauce and canned fruit. Pop-top packaging is preferred as not everyone has a can opener available.
If you can help – and even one item helps! - items can be dropped off at the Health and Human Services Building, 200 San Sebastian View. Just pull up to the front door and drop off your food items with the security guards. If you’d like to collect for your team, please call Tracy Dillon, Social Services Manager, at 209-6150 and she’ll be glad to arrange to pick up your contributions. All items go to St. Johns County citizens in need and your contribution helps feed a needy individual or family. Thank you for your assistance!
