Worker's Compensation

A safe working environment is our number one priority. However, should an accident or injury occur, we want to ensure that our employees receive prompt effective medical treatment. Our goal is to assist injured employees in making a full recovery and returning to their job as soon as possible.

Workers' Compensation coverage is provided for all employees in the event a work-related injury is sustained. Concenta and the Kaiser Occupational Health Center contract with doctors & hospitals to respond to the special requirements of on-the-job injuries or illnesses.

If you have questions, please contact our Worker's Comp Coordinator: 
          Patricia Valenti
          Valentip@mhusd.org
          408-201-6020

If you should experience a work-related injury or illness, you should:

  • Notify your immediate supervisor
  • Complete a Santa Clara County Schools' Insurance Group Report of Employee Incident/Injury Form (see site secretary)
  • If treatment from a physician is needed, an additional form (DWC-1) will need to be completed (see site secretary)

All work status reports from the treating physician, must be sent to the Human Resources Department.

Additionally, the District has a Return to Work Program for individuals whose injuries require restrictions or modified duties for a temporary time period. The site supervisor and the Human Resources Department will determine whether or not it is possible to accommodate restrictions.

If there are any questions regarding the Workers' Compensation Program, contact the Human Resources Department at (408) 201-6020.
