How do I check my leave balance?

You can view your leave balance through the Employee Payroll Information application or by checking your paycheck. Your School District of Philadelphia email name and password are used for access. If you do not know the name and password, call the Technology Help Desk at (215) 400-5555 for assistance. Please note that the balances shown are all subject to a post separation audit. Your paycheck references this.

From the School District of Philadelphia main website (http://www.philasd.org) go to the Employee Portal. In the Employee section, enter your email name and password.  Your email user name should exclude the “@philasd.org” designation.

Launch the “Payroll Information” application. Enter the last four digits of your social security number when prompted.  You can then select Leave Balances tab.
