The payroll office handles paychecks for all district employees, including substitutes.

Pay Dates

All professional and salaried regular employees are paid monthly on or about the 20th of the month.  If the 20th falls on a holiday or weekend, the pay date will be the prior work day.  During summer breaks, paychecks will be mailed or will be available for pickup after 12:00 PM on the 20th of the month.

Substitutes are paid on a bi-weekly schedule- every 2 weeks- on Friday during the regular school year.

Hourly employees are paid on a bi-weekly schedule - every 2 weeks - on Friday during the regular school year, and on Thursday during summer break.  

Please note:  Paychecks will not be released to any person other than the district employee named on the check without the employee's written authorization.


Time Records

Weekly time records will be maintained on all nonexempt personnel.  Signed timesheets must be verified by the supervisor and submitted to Payroll on the designated dates. Records will indicate all hours worked each week, including compensatory time earned and used.  All overtime shall be pre-approved by the immediate campus or department supervisor.  Any employee who repeatedly works in excess of his/her assigned work schedule, without authorization, will be subject to disciplinary action, including possible termination.


All professional employees shall enter time-off requests into Skyward Employee Access or AESOP Substitute system, as applicable, when requesting time off from work (whether a substitute is required or not) to ensure that the time off is recorded in the employee's leave record.  Principals and directors should approve time-off requests daily in order to maintain accurate information in Skyward.  Secretaries who handle time-off in AESOP must reconcile absences to ensure substitutes have been entered and leave has been correctly applied.



Hourly employees should enter all absence requests in Skyward.  Those should be approved by the supervisor before the absence is taken.

Direct Deposit

All employees are eligible for automatic payroll deposit.  Any changes to direct deposit information must be received in the Payroll office 10 days prior to the scheduled pay date.  The Direct Deposit Authorization Form is listed below.
