calendar with payday

As we close out the 2023-24 school year, the Department of Human Resources extends our sincerest thanks for all you have done for our students this school year. Every single ACPS employee impacts student growth and learning and supports Albemarle County families. Your hard work has made a difference this year!

Attention 10- and 11-Month Employees: Given the multiple pay schedules that apply to our employees, we want to provide information that may be helpful for you as we head into summer. This information is in addition to the benefitsFOCUS message we shared earlier today that addresses benefits deductions over the summer. (If you are a supervisor reading this, please ensure that your employees have this information, and answer their questions with the support of the HR team.)

Exempt 10- & 11-Month Employees

Ten- and 11-month exempt employees (those who are not eligible for overtime under the Fair Labor Standards Act) will continue to receive paychecks throughout the summer:

  • The last paycheck for 10-month teachers and 10-month exempt classified employees for the 2023-24 school year will be on August 16, 2024. The first paycheck of the 2024-25 school year (reflecting step increases and other salary adjustments) will be two weeks later, on August 30, 2024.
  • The last paycheck for 11-month teachers and 11-month exempt classified employees for the 2023-24 school year will be on July 19, 2024. The 11-month exempt pay cycle for the 2024-25 school year will start on August 2, 2024, and will reflect step increases and other salary adjustments.

Non-Exempt 10- & 11-Month Employees

Most 10-month non-exempt employees (those who are eligible for overtime) will receive their final paycheck for regularly-scheduled school year work on June 21, 2024. Non-exempt employees working beyond June 14 will receive their final pay for the 2023-24 school year on July 5, 2024.

Non-exempt 10- and 11-month employees will only receive pay during the summer if they work additional hours (e.g., summer school, other assignments) beyond their regular calendar schedules. Employees in this group have paid for their benefits for the summer already and continue to be able to access those benefits. No deductions for benefits will be taken from summer checks for employees in this group who work additional hours over the summer; however, those who are contributing to voluntary retirement programs (403b/457b) will continue to have those contributions deducted from summer checks, where applicable. These employees should contact their plan administrators directly if they wish to interrupt those contributions over the summer and to reinstate them for the start of the new school year.

Looking ahead to next year: Have you checked out our Save for the Summer program? We’ve partnered with the UVA Community Credit Union to create a dedicated summer savings account that can help you cover your household and personal expenses during the summer months when you are not receiving paychecks. You can revisit our March 11 Compass post to learn more about this program and see how easy it is to Save for the Summer!
