Please feel free to contact us any time during our regular business hours or access Employee Self Service at any time.
All initial Human Resources related inquiries (e.g. APPR, evaluations, certification, salary benefits, leaves, workers' compensation, risk management, staff relations, hiring) should be directed to the Call Center at (315) 435-4171 or by emailing to: firstname.lastname@example.org. If our Call Center is not able to answer all of your questions, you will be directed to the appropriate team member(s) who can assist with your request.
Employee Self Service
The Employee Self Service (ESS) webpage
is designed to provide you with the information you need to successfully help monitor and update your human resources information with the Office of Human Resources and Payroll departments.
ESS enables you to monitor and edit certain pieces of your own information. For example, you can now view your paychecks, W-2 forms, compensation history, leave balances, and benefits summaries. You can also edit information including addresses, phone numbers, emergency contacts, direct deposit information, and tax withholding information.
Finance Department information for SCSD staff including forms and procedures is available on the SCSD Intranet.
