Frequently Asked Questions

1. When are paydays? 

Pay Schedule -- For time worked between the first of the month and the 15th of the month, payment will be on the 25th of the month.  For time worked between the 16th of the month and the end of the month, payment will be on the 10th of the following month.  If the 10th or 25th falls on a Saturday, payday will be on Friday. If the 10th or 25th falls on a Sunday, payday will be on Monday.

2. Does Union Public Schools offer direct deposit?

Direct Deposit Form - Yes, it is a condition of employment.  You can choose to have your net check deposited into your savings or checking account at your bank.  You can also have a set amount deducted from your check and deposited into your savings or checking account.

You will receive your direct deposit notice via e-mail if you have access to district e-mail.

3. Insurance premiums are deducted a month in advance, how will this affect my paycheck?

Insurance coverage for certified employees begins the first of the month following employment.  Insurance for support employees begins the first of the month following 60 days of employment.  We deduct premiums a month in advance of coverage, so you may be behind a month in premiums when you start.  So, it is important to make your selections in a timely manner to avoid being too far behind, financially.  If you choose coverage other than single, we will normally spread the premiums out over 2-4 checks for health coverage only.

4. Why are there so many different sections of my pay stub? 

All of this information is required by law to be reported to the employee.

There are 3 main sections to your pay stub: Pay, Deductions and Leave Summary/Tax Information.  Within the Pay section there are 3 columns for fiscal year-to-date earnings, calendar year–to-date earnings and current earnings.  Within the Deductions section there is a section for Employee contributions and a section for Employer Contributions. Within each of these sections there are fiscal, calendar and current totals.  The Leave Summary section lists your current leave balances and the Tax information lists Calendar and current taxable wages as well as tax withholding amounts. Look only at the current column in order to see what affects your current paycheck.

Last Day of School is May 22

Friday, May 22 will be the last day of school for the 2019-20 year. Additional time will be added to the school day for students in grades 6-8 beginning Monday, March 23, and continue through the end of the school year.

“Due to two days of school that were cancelled due to inclement weather, the district calendar had to be adjusted to meet the minimum state requirement of 1,080 hours of instruction,” Superintendent Dr. Kirt Hartzler said. “We wanted to adjust the calendar so students don’t have to come back after Memorial Day.

Modifications to the school schedule will be made as follows:

  1. Add one day at the end of the year, with Friday, May 22, being the last day of school;
  2. Elementary schools:  No change to the schedule. They have enough school hours to meet the required 1,080 hours.
  3. 6th & 7th Grade Center:  4 minutes added to the end of the school day effective Monday, March 23 (the day after spring break). 
  4. 8th Grade Center:  2 minutes added to the end of each day after March 23.
  5. Union High School Freshman Academy:  No change to current times.
  6. Union High School:  Friday, April 10 will be a “virtual day,” with students working on assignments from home.
