What Happens When There Are 27 Pay Periods in a Year?

In case you missed it… Every eleven or so years, we experience a contract year with 27 pay disbursements rather than the usual 26.

  • Ten-month employees - Teachers, Paras, Nutrition, and Transportation will experience 27 pays this contract year, impacting pay dates starting September 9, 2022 through September 8, 2023.

  • Twelve-month employees - Administrators, Secretaries, and Custodians - will experience 27 Pays next contract year, impacting pay dates starting July 28, 2023 through July 26, 2024.


During a 27 pay contract year, the local annual salary is disbursed over 27 pays rather than the usual 26.  Employees will receive their full local annual salary, including any local negotiated increases and all state increases.
