Payroll Department


All Silsbee ISD employees will be paid monthly. An employee’s payroll statement contains detailed information including deductions, withholding information, and the amount of leave accumulated. All employees can obtain this information through Skyward Employee Access.

Payroll will be issued on the 22nd of each month. If the 22nd falls on a Saturday or Sunday, payroll will be issued on the prior Friday. Please refer to the district calendar for exact pay dates.

Since September 1, 2011, Silsbee ISD no longer issues physical paychecks. Employees will have the option to choose to be paid through direct deposit or via bank pay card. Direct Deposit enrollment forms can be obtained online through the district website or by contacting the payroll office. All substitutes will be paid via bank pay card.
