District employees are paid bi-weekly by either direct deposit or a physical payroll check. Employees who do not have regular summer hours (10 month contractual employees) can elect to be compensated over ten months (26 pay cycle) by filling out the form below, otherwise pay is calculated over ten months (21 pay cycle).
Pay dates for the current school year are available below. Please expand the "Payroll" Section.
Direct deposit is an ideal way for you to receive your paycheck. Your paycheck is automatically deposited to an account(s) of your choosing and you will still receive a pay stub. No more trips to the bank! If you do not currently take advantage of this program and would like to enroll, please complete the form below, attach a voided check from your account(s) and send it to Roseann D'Esposito at the District Office. Note: the change to direct deposit may not take effect until one or two subsequent payroll cycles.
