(from Ch. 122, par. 24-21)
Payment of teachers' wages.
The directors shall pay the wages
of teachers in a manner agreed upon by the board, but at least 1 payment
shall be made during each school month. The directors shall issue and deliver
to the teacher an order on the school treasurer for the amount of salary
due. The order shall state the rate and time for which the teacher is paid.
It is unlawful for the directors: (1) to issue an order before they have
certified to any schedule then required to be made; (2) after the date for
filing schedules as fixed by law, to certify any schedule not delivered
to them before that date when such schedule is for time taught before the
first of July preceding; (3) to give an order in payment of a teacher's
wages for the time covered by such delinquent schedule. Teachers not
covered by a negotiated collective bargaining agreement may elect to receive
payment of wages over either a 10 or 12 month period annually.
