803.8 - Payroll Periods

Unless otherwise established through collective bargaining, it is the policy of the Board of Directors that all personnel of the school district be paid monthly in accordance with the length of service stated on their contracts, and that all personnel will be paid on the 20th day of each month except when the 20th falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or a school holiday wherein checks will be issued on the preceding workday.

The board authorizes the superintendent [or designee] to grant pay advances for new hires in an amount not to exceed the amount they would have earned by the time they receive the advance.

All new employees hired after July 1, 2008, as a condition of employment will be required to have their wages paid to them as a direct deposit into a financial institution of their own choosing unless any of the following conditions exist:

  1. The cost to the employee of establishing and maintaining an account for purposes of the direct deposit would effectively reduce the employee’s wages to a level below the minimum wage provided under section 91D.1 of the Iowa Code.
  2. The employee would incur fees charged to the employee’s account as a result of the direct deposit.
  3. The provisions of a collective bargaining agreement mutually agreed upon by the district and the employee organization prohibits the district from requiring the employee to sign up for direct deposit as a condition of hire.
