Don't be surprised on payday! Review your paystub and report changes by 4:30 p.m.


The Payroll team is taking proactive steps to help ensure accuracy of all paychecks. All of our teachers and teacher-types who started July 31 will receive a full check on August 11. 


All employees can review their pay in the Employee Portal. If you notice any discrepancies, be sure to report them by 4:30 p.m. today by calling 416-5304 or using this online form.


Note: The August 11 paycheck includes days worked July 20 - August 2, so non-12-month employees who started on or after August 3 will not receive a check on August 11.
