TUSD is introducing a new time keeping system to help ensure that all hourly staff are compensated for the time they work. Beginning July 1, 2015, hourly TUSD employees on staff over the summer will start using the system. As hourly staff return for the 2015-2016 school year, they will begin using the new system. Hourly employees will clock in and out to record their work time by swiping their photo ID badges at an electronic time clock terminal or by signing into a timekeeping web application from any networked computer in the district.
