Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

WHY IS DIRECT DEPOSIT REQUIRED BY THE DISTRICT?

  1. Direct deposit is a fast, safe, convenient, private, environmentally-friendly and inexpensive way to electronically distribute your payroll funds.

  2. With direct deposit there is no risk of lost, stolen or misplaced payroll checks. (If your missing check needs to be reissued, it may take up to three (3) business days for you to receive a replacement check.)

  3. Direct deposit eliminates the need to wait in line at the bank; funds are available on pay day from any ATM machine.

  4. Direct deposit also ensures that there will be no delay in receipt of your funds due to unforeseen courier issues.

You may set up direct deposit into up to three (3) accounts (checking or savings) nationwide.

I STARTED WORKING BUT I HAVE YET TO RECEIVE A PAYROLL. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

First, have your site timekeeper verify that you have been set up in the Skyward system. Next, using the Payroll Schedule, determine the pay period based on your first day of work and, if you are not paid on the scheduled pay date for the corresponding pay period, see the timekeeper at your work location.

I DID NOT GET PAID FOR CERTAIN HOURS THAT I WORKED. WHAT SHOULD I DO?

The Payroll Department does not have the authority to report time worked; only the school/worksite where the work was performed has this authority. Contact the timekeeper responsible for the payroll at the location where you worked.

MY W-2 DOES NOT REFLECT MY CORRECT INCOME OR SALARY?
