Question: If we are paying STRS for our teachers, would it be possible to pay some teachers over a 12-month period and other teachers over a 10-month period? Or, because of STRS, do we have to have all teachers on the same pay schedule?

Answer: STRS doesn't limit the payment schedule options for your teachers. Using the SACs (Standardized Account Code Structure) payroll function, you can choose a 10-month, 11-month, or 12-month salary payment schedule. Your STRS/PERS reporting must be done through the county, and some County Offices of Education are limiting reporting options for their charter schools. This is not, however, a statutory limitation or a limitation under STRS rules.
