All full-time employees, exempt (salaried) and non-exempt (hourly), are paid on an annualized basis. The employee’s daily rate is multiplied by the number of days the employee will work in their work calendar, divided over the number of months left in their pay cycle to determine their monthly pay rate.
Pay cycles are structured as follows:
10-month (183-201 day calendar) paid September through August,
11-month (202-219 day calendar) paid August through July, and
12-month (220- 226+ day calendar) paid July through June.
Staff Duty Day Calendars are posted and updated annually on the district website under the payroll department webpage. Please refer to the appropriate school year to determine your duty days for the respective year.
Employees must have their paychecks electronically deposited into a designated account. Employees hired by the district will be sent an electronic version of the Direct Deposit form and required to complete the form and electronically attach (upload) supporting documentation such as a voided check or a printed document from their banking institution reflecting their bank account and routing numbers.
The Direct Deposit form must be completed prior to your first day of employment.
All employees are paid monthly. The Payroll Dates Schedule is posted and updated annually on the payroll department webpage. Monthly pay dates represent the pay period used to determine payment for time worked including regular wages, overtime wages, and dock of pay when required hours are not completed and leave used is beyond available leave balances.
All personnel employed on a regular basis for at least four and one-half months are members of the Teacher Retirement System of Texas (TRS). Your earnings from this job are not covered under Social Security.
When you retire, or if you become disabled, you may receive a pension based on earnings from this job. If you do, and you are also entitled to a benefit from Social Security based on either your own work or the work of your husband or wife, or former husband or wife, your pension may affect the amount of the Social Security benefit you receive. Your Medicare benefits, however, will not be affected. For more information, please visit www.socialsecurity.gov or the SSA-1945 you signed during your onboarding process.
TRS provides members with an annual statement of their account showing all deposits and the total account balance for the year ending August 31, as well as an estimate of their retirement benefits. It is the employee’s responsibility to update their address directly with TRS.
