Memo from Payroll re. Payroll Tax - Sept. 11, 2020

On August 8, 2020, President Trump signed a memorandum suggesting the temporary deferral of Social Security payroll taxes for employees that earn less than $4,000 bi-weekly, calculated on a pre-tax basis. The memorandum suggests the deferral period to start as of September 1, 2020, and run through December 31, 2020.

The IRS has provided guidance on the suggested deferral, which includes giving employers the option to opt-in. Tucson Unified School District has reviewed the memorandum and IRS guidance and determined that we will opt-out of the tax deferral. We will continue to follow the law governing the collection of Social Security taxes, also known as the Federal Insurance Contributions Act.

It is also important to understand that the suggestion in the memorandum is a deferral of taxes and not a waiver. Employees would still be liable for the deferred taxes, which employers would be required to automatically deduct from employees' paychecks from January 1 through April 30, 2021, in addition to the normal payroll tax deductions. Any uncollected tax would accrue interest.

If anything changes in the future, such as enacted legislation, we will provide further updates.

Returning to Facilities - Procedures and Regulations

Many TUSD employees are starting to come back to our facilities. This is a reminder that in order to keep everyone safe and healthy, we have new regulations,, that we all must follow, as well as COVID Return to Work Trainings that must be completed before you return.

A few highlights:

Everyone is required to wear a mask/face covering that covers your nose and mouth when on TUSD property, ask yourself the 5 Health Questions posted at the front of each TUSD building before entering, wash/ sanitize your hands often, and sign in at the front desk when you come into a building.

Also prior to returning, you are required to complete the 3 COVID Return to Work Trainings and related tests in the True North Logic Professional Learning Portal .

In your assigned courses, you will see a link titled "COVID-19 Return to Work Trainings".

Within that section, the following courses are posted:

In addition, we have a Disinfection Training video that goes into greater detail about TUSD chemicals and how to use them. This is for any staff member, including Custodians, who are helping to disinfect our spaces.

Thank you for your prompt action to complete these mandatory training that will help keep everyone safe and healthy.

Help Track Student Learning Time

As you are aware, this year is very different than prior years, and school districts have new requirements we must report to the Arizona Department of Education due to the remote school online environment. Thus, we are requesting your help to supplement the student learning time reports. This includes time students are doing school work when not on teacher-led Zoom class meetings and homework. We understand times will be estimates, as we do not expect comprehensive tracking.

Please know a student's grades will not be negatively impacted if parent-entered time tracking is not completed. Our goal is to use all methods at our disposal to understand and encourage student engagement. Any contribution you can provide is much appreciated.

You can do this in Synergy ParentVUE (

  1. Time Tracking is available only through web browsers. It is currently not available through the mobile app. If you have a web browser (such as Chrome) on your smart phone or mobile device, you can log into ParentVUE through the browser on your device. Otherwise, please use a computer.
  2. In ParentVUE, click "Attendance" in the navigation list on the left
  3. Then click the "Time Tracker" link in the upper right of the screen

You should enter time when:

  • your student does work outside of teacher-led sessions (this includes homework and in-class project time)
  • your student is trying to connect to class Zoom sessions but is unable to do so because of technical issues

Please enter total minutes per class, per day, no matter when in the day your student did the work. For your convenience, there are two options:

  • minutes can be entered daily
  • the weekly total of minutes can be entered at the end of each week

Please do your best to enter and submit all applicable minutes for the first week of school. Even one entry helps a lot!

For detailed instructions, please see ParentVUE Time Tracking Instructions (in PDF).
