Frequently Asked Questions for KISD Employees - During School Closure
Specific questions or concerns regarding any of these questions, please consult with your supervisor to address individual circumstances.
Will ALL employees be paid while the District is closed?
Yes, ALL District employees will continue to receive their normal compensation based on their established salary/hourly compensation rate.
REGULAR PAY: ALL employees will continue to be paid at 100% of their regular pay
PREMIUM PAY: If your supervisor directs you to report to work in-person, then you will continue to get premium pay at a rate of “time and one-half” (example: If you make $10/hour, then you will get $15/hour for the hours you work in-person). Any pre-approved overtime work will also be paid at the “time and one-half” premium rate, so no more than $15/hour in the example provided.
CORONAVIRUS ABSENCES: If you can’t work for any reason related to coronavirus, then you should tell your supervisor, and your supervisor will contact HR to assist you
