You can learn more about House Bill 1030 here:

July checks for 12 month certified personnel (teachers, instructional support, principals and assistant principals) will have the raises reflected in them.

Non-certified personnel (classified staff) and Central Office personnel who are eligible for the 1.5% raise, will not see this raise in their July check.  Due to time constraints, the non-certified/classified salary schedule was not updated prior to the July checks being deposited.  The August checks should reflect the correct amounts for the non-certified/classified and Central Office. The retro amount back to July will be included in the August paycheck as well.

August checks will include all salary increases for all employees.

Thank you for all you do!
