We made it to another Friday! Please don’t forget to approve this week’s timecard by the end of today. This will complete our first pay period on our new positive pay system.
If you’ve had trouble approving your timecard in the Kronos mobile app, please review our tips on how to approve timecards on iPhone and Android smartphones. This resource is available as a PDF and a PowerPoint file on our Payroll Clarity Project web page under “Kronos Approval Assistance.”
If you have not yet registered for ADP, please do so by this Friday, January 14. As a reminder, ADP is our new payroll system that is being implemented this month.

If you received multiple emails from this address, please use the code in the most recent email. Continue reading
As a reminder, employee approval of timecards now needs to take place at the end of the last workday of each week. That means that you need to approve this week’s timecard today!

Staff calendars for the 2021-22 school year are now published on the Time and Attendance Documentation web page (under “Timekeepers”). Please use the published Kronos calendars for guidance on your schedule rather than what you see on your future timecard, as timecards do not always show holidays and non-work days until the actual work week.
If you participate in the Substitute Incentive Pay Program, please be advised that, as of Monday, April 19, all time worked under that program will be tracked in and paid through Kronos. Please see below for a brief summary of how this will impact you, and for more information about what you need to know, please review the Substitute Incentive Pay SOP. Continue reading
