I am salaried. On the teacher's scale. Get to pay into the teacher's retirement/pension program. I'm paid bi-weekly and over 12 months. So while I'm not paid for summer, I get paychecks.

My contract is 195 days/per school year, with a PTO pool of 8 days.

I am the same as Jen above, only I am PT so I have fewer days of PTO.  I get 3 PTO, 2 religious days and 3 sick days.  Sick days carry over but not PTO.

Salary. I don't think I'm on a teacher scale because my starting pay was greater than the teacher's starting pay, but not by a lot. I pay into TRS (teacher retirement) instead of social security. We are paid over 12 months and paid once monthly.

We do not have contracts in our district, we are a charter. 187 work days/year, 5 days (40 hours) PTO yearly that is gone if you don't use it, and 5 days sick time yearly that carry over through the years if not used.

That’s sounds like a great deal ! I have over 1200 kids , pre-K -8 and another nurse at the high school . She has approximately 400 kids . We share duties . We are both hourly, no pay for holidays , elearning days or summers . We would like to be on the salary / contacted scale as the teachers !

I'm salaried at a private school.  There is not a teacher pay scale.  I'm paid my salary August to August.  This school year I'll have worked 190 days, next year we have shorter beginning of the year training so it'll be 185 days. I have PTO and sick days but to be honest I have no idea how many because I usually only take off 2 days a school year.

This is my first yr as a school nurse . I’ve been a nurse for 15 yrs . This probably the least I’ll ever make in one year ! I guess I didn’t realize how many days off that I would be without pay !

I am paid hourly and not paid for the summer. So I work my schools summer camp for a couple of weeks each year and make sure to save money out of each check for the summer.

I am paid hourly, but it is put into contract form - X number of school days x 7.5 hours a day = yearly pay and then divided up x 12 monthly paychecks.    If I would be required to work extra or take of time without pay, they would factor that into each paycheck.    I get 9 sick days and 2 personal days a year.  I also pay into our state retirement system.

Oh yeah... I'm only paid during the school year.  I get three personal days, six sick days (I think) and a little bit of family illness time that roll into an "emergency leave" bank if I don't use them.  I'm in the state retirement fund and my insurance costs me next to nothing.
