Salaries for professional personnel shall be paid according to the salary schedule established by the State plus added increments established by the Avoyelles Parish School Board. All other employees shall be paid according to a salary schedule formulated by the Board.  Such a schedule shall take into consideration skill level and years of experience.


All employees shall be paid over twelve (12) months regardless of actual months worked. The pay period for regular employees shall be the 1st day of each calendar month to the last day of the calendar month.  The payroll for twelve (12) month employees shall follow the fiscal year as established by the Board.


Teachers' payroll checks shall be issued in twelve (12) equal installments.  The first check for a school session is issued on the last school day in the calendar month of September; the final check for a school session is issued on the first working day of the month of August.  Teachers who join the school system during the school year shall have their salaries pro-rated accordingly.


NOTE:   All nine, ten and eleven month employees, not employed by the School Board in the previous year, shall be given the option to receive compensation for August.  If elected, the August check will be calculated as the annual salary divided by thirteen (13) equal checks.




The salaries of all employees and substitute workers as outlined in the most recent version of the Avoyelles Parish School Board's salary schedule, will be paid monthly with checks distributed on the dates shown below.  Under no circumstances are paychecks to be issued before these dates.


  1. Regular Monthly Checks

    The salaries of all employees will be distributed on the last day of each month or the last working day of the month, unless the date falls on a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday. If that happens, the checks will be distributed on Friday.
