Payroll Calendar

CPS produces the payroll calendar for district educators based on calendar year. It is important to plan for the January 17, 2020, paycheck, on which gross pay will be 70% of normal.

2021 CPS District Payroll Calendar

NOTE: The payroll calendar below has been confirmed with CPS. Download the 2021 Payroll Processing Calendar provided to us by CPS, which includes additional details like the deduction period for each paycheck, as well as CTA/Metra and Parking distribution dates. The table below is formatted differently from the CPS table; the column order doesn’t match, but is designed to present the information in a more straightforward manner. You can see the 2020 calendar below.

NOTE: At some point, CPS changed the 2020 Payroll Processing Calendar to move the paycheck that would have processed on Friday, January 1, 2021 to Thursday, December 31, 2020. The table and links below were updated this November to reflect their change.
