New Employee Payroll Orientation

  • Florence School District One Payroll has two types of employees, Exempt and Non-Exempt. All employees are paid twice a month (Semi-Monthly), the 15th and the 29th. Semi-monthly employees receive 24 equal paychecks throughout the year. Many employees do not have a clear understanding of how we calculate payroll. We have provided examples below.


Non-Exempt Employee

  • $5.00 per hour for a 7.5 hour work day with a 190 day contract
    5.00 x 7.5 = 37.50 per day (daily rate)
    37.50 x 190 = 7125.00 annual budgeted salary
    7125.00 / 24 = 296.88 per paycheck for 24 equal checks

Exempt Employee

  • Teacher (Bachelors) with 0 years’ experience and a 190 day contract
    20,000 annual budgeted salary
    20,000 / 190 = 105.27 per day (daily rate)
    20,000 / 24 = 833.34 per paycheck for 24 equal checks

  • The number of days in your contract will determine the number of days you will receive in sick leave. Each employee will receive 2 personal days at a reduced daily rate. If you have sick leave available you may use 2 of your sick days as personal days. If you have NO sick leave available OR you have already used 2 of your sick leave days as personal days and you need to take a personal day you will need to use a reduced daily rate personal day. Exempt employee rate is $60 per day and non-exempt employee rate is $12 per day. Once you have used your 2 personal days and/or have exhausted all sick leave you will be docked your daily rate of pay for each day out.
