After the meeting was adjourned and some of the members had left, Connie Laster stopped by to answer a question about the prorated paychecks. This is included for your information but was not acted upon by the PPC.
Connie Laster spoke to the Classified PPC to explain the one-time choice of prorating the paychecks. Letters were submitted last summer to those who were eligible for this option and only about five employees took advantage of this opportunity. It is a one-time decision for choice of prorating the salary for consistency of paychecks. New hires have the option at time of employment. If an employee has a question regarding this policy, they may contact Connie Laster at the Central Office.
