AUSTIN (KXAN) — More than 1,000 employees with the Austin Independent School District, affected by a payroll issue Friday, received their paychecks Monday, the district said.

The district said in a text alert to all staff Friday that 1,320 employees were affected.

AISD explained how the error happened Monday.

A district spokesperson told KXAN “there was an error in the file” that was sent to AISD’s bank for money distribution. When AISD tried to “update the file, it canceled out the transaction.”

The district was expecting to have the error fixed by 12 p.m. Friday, but the bank was “unable to complete a same-day transaction,” the statement read. “We’ve [AISD] now worked with our bank to ensure we can complete same-day transactions in the future, and have created some safeguards within our payroll team to be prevent this from happening again.”

AISD apologized for the error, writing it “will continue working to support our staff affected by this issue to resolve late or overdraft fees,” according to a statement. 

More than 10,400 people are employed with AISD, a district spokeswoman said. That means about 12.6% of staff weren’t paid on time.

Earlier this month, AISD said it’s cutting 632 jobs to give more pay to teachers and help balance its budget.

The district ensured there were no teacher layoffs, and more than half of the positions cut were in the Central Office. Other roles were simply not filled because of enrollment shortages, the district said, and vacancies were eliminated.
