When is my contract due?

Contracts must be signed within 10 days of the issue date. 

Who can I contact with questions about my contract or pay, including incorrect salary placement, incorrect FTE, or incorrect contract type? 

First, please sign and submit your issued contract. You will be issued a revised contract if your contract information changes. Then, contact Stefanie Roberts at sroberts@nsd.org or Lance Andahl at landahl@nsd.org

If you are new to Northshore this year, Data Management may not have received all of your experience and academic credit documentation. As we receive and post your documentation your salary placement will be updated, you will be issued a revised contract, and you will receive retroactive pay. 

What is ‘Annual FTE’?

Your Annual FTE is a calculation based on the number of contracted days in your assignment and the number of hours you work per day. A 1.0 FTE equals a 180 day contract working 7.5 hours per day. For example, you may be a 0.5 FTE if you are contracted to work 180 days at 3.75 hours/day OR you may be a 0.5 FTE if you are contracted to work 90 days at 7.5 hours/day. 

When will I receive my stipend? 

Contract-defined Extended Days stipends, travel stipends, and department head stipends are paid beginning September 30th.

Stipends for activities, athletics, extra-curricular, music, and TRT assignments are paid beginning October 31st.

How many additional credits/clock hours do I need to advance salary levels?

Please email Stefanie Roberts at sroberts@nsd.org for a credit summary report. Credits and clock hours awarded prior to October 1st can be used toward your salary placement.
