Important Announcements

Travel Reimbursements                                                                                     
All travel reports are due within 30 days following the end of the month being reported.  Submit signed and approved reports to the Finance Department on or before the 10th of the month. Auditors require original signatures for both the employee and supervisor.

Incorrectly signed or completed reports received in Finance by the 10th may result in delay of payment, possibly until the next month’s travel payment process. Local travel reports should be completed on a calendar month basis and will be paid on or near the 15th of the month. Submissions older than 30 days will be denied.     

Local travel reports received correctly and within the 30 days, but after the 10th are subject to be held for payment until the next month’s 15th travel payment process.

Additionally, due to external auditors’ requirements, detailed, itemized receipts are required for meal reimbursements for the State Reimbursement travel or SEA System reimbursement request forms.  Please refer to State Travel Guidelines on the BCPS website for further details on meal reimbursements.

State Reimbursement travel and SEA System forms are not included in the 15th payment process with local travel, but can be paid throughout the month.  However, the 30 day rule does still apply to these forms as well.                            

Note:  You are not reimbursed for traveling from home to an initial duty station for the day even if it is not your regular workplace assignment.  Departing from your last duty station to travel home/personal destination is not reimbursable.

State Awarded Bonus Days
Any person who is a full-time, permanent employee of the local board of education on July 1, 2017, and eligible to earn annual leave shall have a one-time additional three days of annual leave credited to their available leave balance. Part-time, permanent employees shall receive a pro rata amount of these three days. The leave shall remain available during the length of the employee's employment, notwithstanding any other limitation on the total number of days of annual leave that may be carried forward. This additional leave awarded has no cash value and is not eligible for cash in. If not used prior to the time of separation or retirement, the bonus leave cannot be paid out and is lost.

Ten Month Employees                                                                                      This applies to persons classified as 10 month employees (not on the State Installment Plan), who have Health Insurance, Dental and Vision Insurance Premiums withheld from monthly paychecks.

In certain months additional funds must be withheld from your pay in order to continue summer coverage. Please, anticipate the regular deduction for Health insurance in the month of February, as well as an additional ½ deduction. This will continue for the months of March, April, and May. The additional ½ deduction for these four months will serve to pay your Health Insurance Premiums for the months of July and August, when you are not receiving a BCPS payroll check.      ( ½ Feb + ½ Mar = July Coverage) & ( ½ Apr + ½ May = August Coverage).

Additional deductions for Dental and/or Vision Insurance Coverage will occur in the months of April and May.
