All salary deductions will normally be subject to Board approval and are voluntary on the part of the individual employee, except for deductions for absences not covered by paid leave or those required by law. The employee must authorize all voluntary deductions in writing.


<                    Contributions to the Missouri Educational Employees Memorial Scholarship Program shall be voluntary, but not subject to Board approval.


<                    Salary deductions for unauthorized or unpaid absences of salaried personnel shall be computed by dividing the contracted salary, excluding extra-duty pay, by the number of days in the contract period. Deductions for other personnel shall be based upon the hourly rate of individual employees.


<                    The Board may authorize voluntary payroll deductions from compensation earned by employees if ten (10) or more employees so request. These deductions may be taken for, but are not limited to, credit unions, annuities, IRA membership dues, insurance premiums or other voluntary contributions. The amount deducted will be remitted to the organization, company or association authorized by the employee. In addition to the amount authorized, the district may deduct any administrative costs of compliance. The Board shall not be responsible for any good-faith error in the administration of this service.


<                    If the district provides a system of payroll deduction, the district will, upon written request by ten (10) or more employees, provide employees with the option of contributing to a continuing committee through payroll deduction. A continuing committee is a committee of continuing existence that 1) is not formed, controlled or directed by a candidate, 2) is not a candidate or campaign committee and 3) has the primary or incidental purpose of receiving contributions or making expenditures to influence or attempt to influence the action of voters. No employee will be subjected to any adverse employment action based on his or her participation or lack thereof in such a program.
