  • If I am hired after the calendar start date for my position how is my pay calculated?

    Posted by:

    Your pay is based on the total number of days worked in the SY.

    Example: 
    Employee is scheduled to work 187 days per year.
    The employee was hired after the calendar start date and will work less than the 187 days scheduled.

    Multiply your anticipated number of days worked by your daily rate to identify your prorated annual salary. Now, the prorated annual salary will be divided by the number of months remaining in the school year to get your monthly rate.

  • Am I eligible for the Board-approved salary increase?

    Posted by:

    Per the Compensation Manual page 16:

    Salary Increase Eligibility
    Board-approved general salary increases apply to employees in permanent positions. Board Policy DEA (Local) states:

    “To be eligible for a pay increase, an employee must have a satisfactory evaluation from the prior school year.” This policy also states: “In order to qualify for a year of experience or an approved salary increase in a subsequent year, an employee must have worked and been paid for at least four and one-half months, a full semester of more than four calendar months, or 90 actual working days in the current year. An employee may combine days worked in another school district, or other accredited entity recognized by the Texas Education Agency (TEA), in the current year with days worked in the District in the current year to satisfy this requirement, provided the service rendered in the other district is evaluated as creditable according to state and local regulations regarding service credit.”

  • How do I get to the midpoint of my salary range?

    Posted by:

    There is not a formula or methodology to achieve midpoint of the range. Upward movement in the salary range is generally dependent upon the value of the across-the-board salary adjustment compared to the movement of the range midpoint (based on the market in the same year).

  • What happens when I transfer from one job to another job during the school year?

    Posted by:

    The pay is calculated for each position worked. You will receive a final pay off check for your previous position on the very next payroll. Your new salary should also commence the same month as your pay off from your former position if you started your position before the 15th of that month.
