Wayne County School System pays certified employees according to the most current state pay scale. In addition to the state salary, all certified employees receive a $1,500 supplement. Some employees receive an additional supplement for duties carried out beyond the normal school day. Current pay scales are attached at the bottom of this page.

Employees are encouraged to sign up for a Direct Deposit of their paychecks. Employees who use Direct Deposit will receive an email report of their pay and deductions each pay period.

For employees who do not use Direct Deposit, paychecks are distributed by the principal at each school during the regular school year. In the summer (June and July), paychecks can be picked up by the employee at the Board of Education from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. Any paychecks not picked up will be sent to the employee's school when school resumes.  Substitute paychecks may be picked up at the Board of Education between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. on the pay date.

Payroll Dates:
