Not all school districts defer income; some pay salaries over nine months. Others make salary deferral an option for teachers. Some teachers do extra activities in the summer to earn additional income beyond the nine-month contract. Summer school is one way teachers earn extra money over the summer, while some teachers work temporary jobs to supplement their annual incomes.
