I forgot to pick up my check from my site on payday, where is it now?
After payday, contact your school site’s office manager first in regards to your paycheck location.

My doctor is putting me off work for an extended period. Do I notify payroll?

I am resigning from AUSD. Will my accumulated sick leave be paid out to me?
PERS and STRS regulations prohibit any district from paying our sick leave. However, it can be transferred to a new school district, county, or city in California. Notify your new employer that you have sick days at AUSD and they will send us a form for transfer. If you are retiring, your sick days will be forwarded to PERS or STRS and used to increase your service credit.
I recently changed my name and or moved. How do I change that information with the district?
You can update your address and personal information through the Escape Portal escape.acoe.org
