Frequently Asked Questions

  • Where do I pick up my paycheck?
     
    Regular district employees can pick up their paycheck/paystub in the office at their school site or department on payday. When the district is closed for recess periods, paychecks/paystubs are mailed.
     
    All substitute employees paychecks/paystubs are mailed every month.
     
     
    I worked extra hours and/or overtime last month. When am I paid for this extra work?
     
    Classified Staff: The paycheck you earn at the end of each month includes the extra work and/or overtime worked the prior month. (Example: If you performed work on May, you must complete a May timesheet and turned in to Payroll by the 1st working day of June. On your June paycheck/paystub, you will see the earnings for May's timesheet).  
     
    Certificated Staff (Teacher): You will receive a separate paycheck on the 15th of the following month of the additional work performed. If and only the timesheet was turned in on time.
     
     
    Who gets paid on the 15th of the month?
     
    Substitute teachers are the only people that get paid on the 15th of the month.
     
     
    When are time sheets due?
     
    All time sheets need to be turned in to the District Office by the 1st working day of the month in order to be paid for the previous month.
     
     
    How often may I change my Federal/State withholding?
     
    Employees are allowed to change their tax withholding exemptions as often as they like. Employees can change their Federal and State withholding by completing a new W-4 Form and submitting it to Payroll. If you need to claim a different withholding allowance for State, you will also need to complete a new DE-4 Form. Calculators exist to help you determine your Federal and State tax liability (IRS Withholding Tax Calculator). Payroll also recommends consulting with your tax advisor for guidance. The original W-4 and/or DE-4 Form must be submitted to Payroll no later that the 15th of the month for processing.
     
     
    When will the annual W-2s be ready?
     
    Your W-2 will be mailed to your mailing address on file no later than January 31, 2019.  Please contact HRD with address changes prior to January 20th in order for you to get it promptly.  If you misplace or don’t receive your W-2 Form in the mail, you may request a copy after February 4th.   
     
    If you wish to change your withholdings for 2018, the W-4 (Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificated), and DE4 (California Employee's Withholding Allowance Certificated) forms are available on the Finance Dept section of the VUSD website or in Payroll at the District Office.
