Do Teachers Get Paid Immediately?
You will probably get your first paycheck at the end of the first month of teaching. It really depends on the school district, but I have never heard of anyone getting paid before they begin teaching.
I start back in mid-August, and my first paycheck will be at the end of August.
So – if you need some dough, you will need to plan on working.
Best of luck to you.
So yes, you should probably get a job of some kind to get you through the summer.
I have worked for 2 school districts and both paid once a month on the last day of the month. It’s not up to the principal when you get paid because the principal doesn’t sign the check, the school district superintendent does.
You will need to get a job and plan to work part time through the first month of school or budget so you will have enough money to live without a paycheck for that first month.
They should give you a payroll schedule that will tell you when pay day is.
