Maple Heights CSD Payroll Processing
The fiscal team continues to process payroll for Maple Heights. The team has handled MH payroll since their 10/12/2012 pay date. January 30th MH hired a new payroll officer, Beverly Trzeciak who started February 19th and is now being trained at NEOnet to take over the duties. While this has been a strain on the fiscal team, much has been learned from this experience. MH uses Kronos to track their classified staff hours and, with the aid of Lisa Nash at NEOnet, they have been able to fully integrate with USPS. This work has also provided the opportunity to evaluate the feasibility of bringing a districts’ payroll into NEOnet.
