  • Bi-Weekly Payroll Coming!

    Non-Certified Payroll Transitioning to Bi-Weekly Pay Schedule

    In order to increase efficiency and reduce costs, the Pawtucket School Department will be moving to a bi-weekly payroll schedule for non-certified employees effective later this month. This changeover was agreed upon in the latest collective bargaining agreement between the Pawtucket School Committee and AFSCME Local 1352. 


    We understand that converting from a weekly to a bi-weekly pay schedule can be difficult for employees. In order to make the transition smoother we will be issuing transition checks to ease into a bi-weekly cycle.


    The transition schedule is as follows:

    • Your August 17th paycheck will be your last full weekly paycheck.
    • On August 24th you will receive a paycheck with 40% of your weekly salary, and all overtime earned that week. In this paycheck, there will be no co-share or other deductions.
    • On August 31st you will receive a paycheck with one full week of pay and the other 60% of your pay from the prior week. This paycheck will have bi-weekly co-share and other deductions.

    • You will not receive a paycheck on September 7th.
    • You will receive your first full bi-weekly paycheck on September 14th


    Thank you for your patience during this transition. Employees should contact the payroll office by email with any questions.
