As a follow-up to the November 17 email message from Assistant Superintendent Clare Keiser, please remember to complete the Transition Pay Options Acknowledgement Form by Friday, December 3. All employees are required to complete this form to either accept or decline the one-time pay advance that will be distributed on January 31. Please note: This one-time pay advance is related to our move to biweekly pay and is different from the one-time payment approved by the school board earlier this month, which will be added automatically to the December paychecks of all regular employees.
The one-time pay advance option being offered to all regular part-time and full-time employees will equal 80 hours of pay and will need to be repaid by June 30, 2022. If you’re not sure if this is the right option for you, please use our Pay Transition Calculators available on the ACPS Payroll Clarity Project page to determine if this payment would be a beneficial option.
If you were unable to attend any of our recent Payroll Clarity Project information sessions, you can access a recording of the session and a link to download the slide presentation on our Payroll Clarity Project page. Also, new to the page is an Employee Information Packet, including printable instructions on how to use the Pay Transition Calculators and more information on other resources available to help you plan for this change.
