— Pay up! That’s what some teachers are saying to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction.

Teachers under contract with the Virtual Public School said their checks are several weeks late. State officials acknowledged the checks are overdue, but said a scheduling error created the delay.

Officials said the checks will be cut Friday night. School representatives said they might re-structure the current contracts to avoid another delay.
