*Term 4 end dates that fall on a Friday should be entered in EdPay End of Year screen as the following Sunday.

 To update your school term dates:

  1. Log in to EdPay using your username and password

  2. Go to EdPay > My Employees > End of Year screen > School Term Dates tab

  3. Enter your school's term 4 2022 end date

    If your school's end date is a Friday, enter the following Sunday in the End of Term 4 field. This ensures your teachers' salary is paid up to the Sunday, and holiday pay is paid from the Monday. Non-teachers who finish on the last day of school will be paid up to the Friday unless they are rostered to work on the Saturday/Sunday. Their annual leave will be paid from the Monday.

  4. Enter your school's term 1 2023 start date and term 4 2023 end date. These are the dates your school opens and closes for instruction. If you don't know what they will be, use the Ministry's published dates.

  5. These dates will auto-save in EdPay - They can be edited up until the End of Year screen is closed on 21 November 2022.
