How STRS days are calculated 

The system first finds all checks for employees which have a pay date in the reporting month. The payroll beginning and ending dates for those checks determine the calendar date range for counting service days. This range very likely will start in the preceding month and end during the reporting month. From this information, blank working calendars are created on the system. Blank working calendars are used internally by the system and cannot be viewed.

The job calendars for employees which correspond to the date range from the first step are entered into the blank working calendars. The Attendance transactions (type Attendance or Absence) with paid dates in the reporting month are marked on the working calendars appropriately for each day. The calendars are "modified" inside the program to reflect the days from the calendars plus days from Attendance. So you can think of Attendance records as modifying the calendars on a per employee (or compensation) basis.

After the working calendars are built, the system counts the days for the date range and that is the total unadjusted service days.

The system then locates any Adjustment transactions (STRS Retirement Days) in Adjustment Journal in the month for the retirement type. Adjustment transactions entered are considered manual adjustments to what the system would calculate. Note that "manual adjustment" transactions are picked up based on the reporting month instead of the date range that the employee was paid for. Any adjustments dated within the month will be applied. The manual adjustment records are a bit different because they are not for specific days. In this case, you are just adjusting the total days for the month. The adjustments (if any) are added to or subtracted from the total service days from the working calendars. The total of the days from the working Calendars, Attendance and the Adjustment Journals is the total service days that will appear on STRS report.
