Executive Summary

Key Finding: More than 8 million people work in K-12 schools. While some school personnel like classroom teachers and administrators are often salaried, many workers are paid by the hour. Analyses included in this research brief suggest that the average school district has over 300 hourly (“non-exempt” or “overtime eligible”) employees who generate over 82,000 payroll records during a school year. Accurate records and data tracking are essential to ensure compliance with labor laws and collective bargaining agreements. Managing this large quantity of data falls to human resources and payroll staff who are already tasked with recruiting and hiring new workers in a tight market and then integrating new hires into existing record keeping and reporting systems. This paper recommends best practices for the management of essential data.
