• Welcome to LGTA

    LGTA is as strong as its' members. Your elected officers are not "The Union" you are the union. Teachers’ unions are made up of groups of people like you and me who work together to solve problems and to have a voice in what happens in our work environment. A teachers’ union gives us a louder voice on the job with regards to salary, benefits, safety, job security, and the ways in which our work is done and handled.

    By joining LGTA, you can take part in making the decisions that affect salary, fringe benefits, leave and transfer policies, workload, grievance procedures, curriculum matters, safety programs, and other teacher concerns. Only as a member of LGTA/CTA/NEA are you able to elect representation to the Council and Assembly of Lemon Grove Teacher’s Association /California Teachers Association/National Education Association and receive representation during any RIF proceedings. Additional benefits include: NEA No-Cost Life and Accident Insurance, attorney referral on employment-related and private legal matters, low-cost insurance, and entertainment-travel-recreational discount passes.

    How to view your paychecks on PAY DAY

    Go directly to this website below: (Note: there will also be a link on our Lemon Grove School District website under Staff: Paystubs online)

    1. https://ess.erp.sdcoe.net
    2. Enter your Employee ID
    3. Default Password – First 4 of last name in CAPS + Last 4 of SSN
    4. You can use ESS from home/work or anywhere. Disable pop-up blocker – The PDF paycheck will try to pop up in a new tab/window
    5. Two useful handouts:
      1. Viewing Your Paycheck in ESS (8 pp.) – These directions cover how to log into ESS, change a password, enter a security question, and view paychecks/compensation split (updated 7/22/16)
      2. How to Read Your Paycheck (3 pp.) – Job aid for how to read the paycheck
    1. There is a Compensation Split link directly below the View Paycheck link to see earnings in greater details (Multiple Components of Pay MCOPs, additional pays, stipends, payroll earnings, and items which add to the total gross). These directions are in the Viewing Your Paycheck in ESS handout.PeopleSoft
    2. You are encouraged to set up your security question (pp.2-3 of Viewing Your Paycheck in ESS). That way you can later use the "Forgot My Password" link on the ESS login page to have a new temporary password emailed to you in the event that you forget your password.

    You can log in prior to payday, you just won’t see a paycheck stub until payday.
