SALARY INCREASE AND TRANSCRIPTS

Employees who qualify for salary increments pursuant to their individual contracts are now able to submit the necessary transcripts electronically. Please use THIS form to complete the process.

 

This form is exclusively for teachers and staff who have completed all of the necessary coursework needed to receive a step increase in their salaries. If your transcript reflects updated credit hours that are short of the number required for a step increase, you do not need to submit them; please wait until you have the necessary number needed for a pay increase before completing the Transcript Submission Form. 

 

The EPS Department of Human Resources does not need copies of transcripts that are unrelated to contractually obligated salary increases. 

 

Going forward, this is the only way the EPS Department of Human Resources will accept the transcripts related to salary increments. Please do not email or  mail them, or drop them off in person. Thank you for your cooperation with this new protocol.
