ADP vs. Contract Rates explanation
All Days Paid (ADP) is the method that counts each day from the start to the end of each school year (excluding weekends). ADP can vary from year to year depending on the start and end of the school year. For employees who work a 196-day calendar, the 2017-18 year had 214 All Days Paid and the 2018-19 year has 216. The ADP hourly rate is adjusted annually depending on the number of ADP days so that every employee gets the same annual contractual salary during the school year. This rate appears on the employees’ paystub as illustrated below:


The “CONTRACT” rate is a method that counts only days worked and paid holidays. Most teachers work 196 days. This number does not change from year to year. The “Contract” hourly rate stays the same each year (dependent upon raises). This rate appears when you click on "estimated dollar values" on the “vacation and sick balances” tab of your EES salary information as illustrated below:


The rate used to pay employees who occasionally work extra hours is the “Contract” rate, unless it is a workshop or supplement with an already established flat rate of pay.

Employees who work an extra hour every day as part of their regular schedule are paid the All Days Paid (ADP) rate for that extra hour.
