Employee Frequently Asked Questions
It is the intent of EPS to ensure there is no disruption to pay for both support and certified employees. All school employees will receive their regular paychecks on April 20. Oklahoma law allows certified employees and administrators to be paid in the event of a school closure due to an epidemic. District administrators are recommending that the Board of Education approve a Memorandum of Understanding with the Enid Support Personnel Organization that will allow the district to provide support employees with enough emergency leave to cover the school closure. The MOU is expected to be approved on April 2.
TLE requirements are being waived for this school year. Nothing more is required.
It has been recommended to the state Board of Education that an extension be granted to teachers needing an emergency certificate for a third year, as long as the emergency candidate has made progress towards his or her provisional certification.
