Payroll Services

Welcome to Payroll Services.  The Payroll Services Department processes semi-monthly and monthly payrolls for Board appointed and temporary hourly employees of the School Board of Sarasota County.  Employee leave balances are maintained and payroll deductions are processed including professional dues, leaves and garnishments.  In addition to processing your payroll check, our department is responsible for tax withholding and wage reporting to the Social Security Administration, Internal Revenue Service, Florida Department of Unemployment and the Florida Retirement System.

SCS employees may view the Payroll Calendar, their attendance, payroll, deduction information and W2 Forms via the Employee Portal through the School Board Website at or by clicking on the link to the portal:

    Effective July 1, 2011, all SCS employees shall be paid by direct deposit.  Employees must submit a direct deposit authorization form with a VOIDED check or form from their banking institution with the routing and account numbers imprinted, not hand written to the Payroll  Department.

All SCS employees are currently paid on a semi-monthly basis and receive 24 checks per contract year.  10 and 11 month employees receive additional checks in June so they are paid by the end of their 10 or 11 month contract.

All appointed SCS employees are enrolled in the Florida Retirement System.  All hourly, part-time employees and substitutes are enrolled in Bencor, the FICA alternative plan.  You may contact them at 1-888-258-3422 for additional information.

Attached is a listing of Payroll Accountants with their extensions and the cost centers they provide direct services to.
