When an employee of the Sioux City Community School District sustains an injury, it not only impacts that employee’s life, the injury impacts his or her family, and the continuity of the students we educate.  

What you should do if you are injured at work? 

Workers’ Compensation Injury Procedure

  2. Seek medical attention as directed by Company Nurse. You may be referred to self-care, an occupational health practitioner, urgent care, or to go to an emergency room.

Human Resources (HR) will be notified of the incident by Company Nurse and will provide you with the required paperwork. Please submit the paperwork within 24 hours to your principal, supervisor, or to HR. For assistance, or any concerns, call human resources at (712) 279-6692. You may reach Paul Logsdon at ext. 6120 or Stefanie Verros at ext. 6119.

Note: If you choose to be treated by a personal doctor, you may not qualify for workers’ compensation insurance benefits and you may be responsible for all medical costs related to this incident. This is in accordance with Iowa Workers’ Compensation statute, Iowa Code Chapter 85.27.
