Administrative Procedure

The cafeteria manager is paid an annual salary. Twenty-six checks will be released over twelve (12) months of the year. The manager and the principal should schedule his/her time so that he/she works a normal eight (8) hour day during a 185 day work year and in accordance with the Operational Calendar (533.110).

Salary scales for cafeteria assistants are published in the Negotiated Agreement showing the annual salary. These are based on a normal eight (8) hour day for 182 days of the school year. A normal eight (8) hour day will include seven and one-half hours of labor and one-half hour for lunch. Cafeteria assistants are paid for their lunch time. Those assistants assigned to work less than eight (8) hours per day will receive a pro-rated annual salary.

Withholding for retirement purposes is based on the annual salary, and will be deducted from twenty-two (22) paychecks.

All full time cafeteria assistants (6 or more hours per day) may receive a free lunch.

Cafeteria workers who work four (4) or more but less than six (6) hours per day will receive an annual salary based on an hourly rate which is set annually and adjusted for the hours and days the employee is expected to work. Annual salary will be divided by twenty-six (26) to determine the amount of pay per pay date.

Cafeteria workers who work less than four (4) hours per day are paid based on an hourly rate times the number of hours worked in a pay period.
