The Johnson County School Board has approved changing their policy regarding summer paychecks for teachers, moving away from a lump payment in June for all three months, to spread them out monthly over the summer months.
According to a report in the agenda from Business Manager Connie Gay, with the district being on the bubble as to whether they are a recapture or entitlement district, it will help the district manage their cash flow.
The district needs roughly $3 million to fulfill teacher contracts in June through the end of the fiscal year, with each payroll needing about $1 million each.
The district will now issue teacher paychecks over three periods in the summer months at $1 million each month.
The board accepted the change as part of their consent agenda at their recent regular meeting in Kaycee.
