  • W2 Salaries:

    Fiscal Year Salaries:

    (Each of these documents with headers that include Position and FTE comes from the school's Human Resources database. It is the salary budgeted for each employee. For all salaried employees, this is the salary total for their contract. For hourly, it is the hourly total if they work all of the hours they are scheduled to work. )

    Acton Municipal Salaries

    • Base Salaries FY2011 and FY2012-This file was received from the Town of Acton on Nov. 17, 2011. It represents scheduled salaries for all town employees. Actual salaries paid can be seen in the 2010 W-2 list elsewhere on Acton Forum. Further information provided by the town:
        Some employees’ “rate” will show as hourly and will have a low annual salary because they work very few hours during the year
        Some employees’ hourly “rate” will also be listed under the annualized columns, (for example, Christiane Carvalho), because they work per diem and will get paid that hourly rate only when called.
        The fiscal year 2012 column is estimated salaries because this data came from the Finance Office’s Position Control database which they must populate during fiscal year 2011 in order to prepare for fiscal year 2012 payroll costs. So, there are employees who have not yet received their fiscal year 2012 salary.
