6000P Procedure - Program Planning, Budget Preparation, Adoption, and Implementation
Payroll - Authorization and Control
Employment of all certificated and classified staff must be approved by the Board and authority to pay for such services rendered follows this approval. Annual salaries will be determined by placement on the district salary schedule in terms of position, experience, training (where applicable), and collective bargaining agreements (where applicable). Proper documentation is required to receive credit for experience and training.
Unless otherwise specified, each staff member will receive their salary on the last working day of each month equal to 1/12 of the staff member's yearly salary less statutory, contractual, and voluntary deductions. Voluntary payroll deductions must be authorized by the Board.
All district employees are required to receive payroll related payments via direct deposit. It is the employee’s responsibility to notify the Payroll Office when there is any change to their bank and/or bank account that affects their direct deposit by completing a new Direct Deposit Authorization Agreement. Should an employee fail to notify the Payroll Office that a bank account was closed, the district will not issue a paper check until the funds are received from the banking institution.
All newly hired employees or re-hired employees must complete a Direct Deposit Authorization Agreement as a condition of employment.
The district will make payroll deductions for staff as required by law, such as federal withholdings, applicable state retirement contributions, and industrial insurance premiums.
The district will make payroll deductions for staff based on contractual agreements, such as those required by collective bargaining agreements.
The district may make allowed voluntary payroll deductions for staff after an employee has submitted a written request to make such a deduction.
