A: The issue about the number of pay periods has nothing to do with the contracts issue about the status of whatever contract you say you signed. I suggest you contact someone in the district or perhaps your union rep and ask them about your status for next year.

A: Likely no. As long as you are paid the full amount you were contracted to receive, you cannot sue for messing up your budget. Good luck to you.
