Permanent certificated and classified employees are paid at the end of each month. Contractual pay is split equally over the fiscal year. Health and welfare benefits are paid similarly, ending in June of any fiscal year.
Temporary, part-time employees (substitutes, adult education, home/hospital, and student workers) are paid on the 10th of the month. Time sheets are due to the payroll department near the end of the month.
Collective Bargaining Representation
Most employees are represented by one of these three employee organizations: certificated non-management employees are covered by the Nevada Joint Union High School Teachers Association (NJUHSTA), classified non-management employees are covered by the California Schools Employees Association, Chapter 165, (CSEA), and adult education teachers by the Placer/Nevada Teachers Union, AFT Local 2267, AFL-CIO. Employee union dues are mandatory to each association. Contracts are available through the links below.
Advancement on the Salary Schedule
Certificated employees must notify the District, in writing, of any additional units or advanced degrees they have received. Employees will advance after a review of the official transcript(s) and the salary advance will be effective on the date the transcript(s) were received by the District Personnel Office. (NJUHSTA Article 27.4)
Cafeteria Plan/Tax Sheltered Annuities
The Omni Group administers the district’s IRS Section 125 Cafeteria Plan, which allows employees to tax defer income through a variety of programs, including child care, unreimbursed medical payments, and tax sheltered annuities.
Tax sheltered annuities allow employees to shelter a portion of their income into a personal retirement plan. The district has "hold harmless agreements" on many different funds. However, any new funds must be supported by CalSTRS. CalSTRS support can be viewed on the STRS website.
To make any changes to your TSA, employees must complete the OMNI form (available under "Related Files" below). Changes can only be made twice per year, except to cancel the deduction.
Remember! ANY changes to the end of the month payroll must be turned into the Payroll Department by the 13th of the month.
OMNI is the Nevada Joint Union High School District's third party administrator for our 403(b) plan.

WageWorks provides the administration for the tax-sheltered Un-Reimbursed Medical* (URM) and Dependent Day Care (DDC) Flexible Spending Accounts (FSA).
