    When employees are injured while on duty for the district the injury needs to be reported immediately to the employee's supervisor. Substitute employees, coaches, certificated and classified employees are required to complete an Accident/Incident Report for all injuries, regardless of whether medical attention was required or received. The Accident/Incident Report should be completed as soon as possible following the injury and submitted to the employee's supervisor. Employees have 12 months from the date of injury to seek medical attention.
    If medical attention for an injury is required employees must file an L&I claim. Effective June 2013 all claims are filed electronically through Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust, the third-party administrator for all on-the-job injury claims for the district. To file a claim please go to the Puget Sound Workers' Compensation Trust website at: http://www.pswct.org and click on the box that shows: CLICK HERE to File An Online Claim. Once the claim is filed Human Resources is automatically notified electronically and will complete the process as well as send additional information to the employee.
    It is extremely important that employees submit a copy of the completed Activity Prescription Form (or whatever paperwork the medical provider gives you) to Human Resources immediately after receiving treatment and following every appointment. This document can be faxed to the benefits office at 425-385-4135, scanned and emailed to benefits@everettsd.org or brought to Human Resources in the CRC Building at 3900 Broadway.
    • Once you access the claim process you have a total of three hours to complete it. Be sure to have all the information necessary prior to beginning so you don’t get “logged out”. If you do not complete the process within the three hours you will have to start over.
    • Be brief in your explanation of the injury and how it occurred – there is a limited number of characters allowed.
    • DO NOT click on the red “X” on the upper left of your screen – this will close the screen and you will not have actually filed a claim. If you do click on the red “X” you will have to start the process over as the system does not save the information until the claim is actually submitted.
    • Be sure to actually sign the claim form and provide your email address. Employees are encouraged to use their district email, especially if they do not have a private email account.
    • This process can be completed from any computer. Employees who do not have access to a computer or printer at home can use a district computer and printer.
    • Employees who need assistance with the process can call the benefits office at 425-385-4115.  Computers are available in Human Resources for employees who need assistance with completing the process online.
