Teaching Assistant Lane Changes

    Please read the TA Lane Change Instruction document below before calling HR and before submitting a lane change request.
    • In-service workshops must be taken UNPAID in order to qualify for a lane change.  Make sure you indicate on your time sheet that the hours are to be UNPAID.  If this is not done and payroll pays you for your time at a workshop/class taken during the normal work day, that pay cannot be reversed, and your time at that workshop will not be counted towards a lane change.
    • You must get PRE-APPROVAL for any external classes/workshops in order for them to qualify for a lane change.
    It is the responsibility of each employee to submit workshop certificates / PDExpress transcripts with the appropriate pre-approvals to Human Resources for lane change.  PDExpress does not report any information to Human Resources.

    If you have any questions about the Lane Change process for Teaching Assistants, please contact Molly Ticknor at (651) 744-5593 or e-mail payroll at payroll@spps.org
