  • Help reduce PPS paper use! Opt out of paper pay stubs

    Did you know the average American uses 650 pounds of paper each year? The BESC Green Team is focusing on paper reduction and we wanted to share an easy way for you to be involved too! 
    If you are enrolled in direct deposit, the default setting on PeopleSoft is to receive a paper pay stub in the mail each month. Help us reduce our districtwide paper use by taking one minute to ‘opt out’ of receiving those hard copies! Easy to follow instructions are found here to guide you through the process. Electronic pay stubs will always be available online.
    PPS has nearly 8,500 employees – that is potentially 102,000 extra pieces of paper used each year!
