Employee Transfer Process

    2020-2021 Employee Transfer Process  

    The Employee Transfer Application is open for full-time teachers and paraprofessionals seeking comparable positions in other SCPS schools for the 2020-21 school year until June 19, 2020.  The Employee Transfer Application is available through Employee Self-Service, which you can access here
     
    If you are interested in seeking a transfer for next school year, please read below to know what the Employee Transfer Application can be used for and how to apply. If you have questions, please contact Human Resources at humanresources@staffordschools.net or 540-658-6560.
     
    Who can use the Employee Transfer Application? Full-time contracted teachers and paraprofessionals who are interested in similar positions at other schools. The transfer application can be used to apply for identical positions in different schools, or for positions in different content areas or paraprofessional assignments.
     
    Who cannot use the Employee Transfer Application? Administrators, staff in service positions other than paraprofessionals, as well as part-time staff, substitutes, and other temporary employees. (For the last group, if you are interested in full-time positions, please use the other applications available online.)
     
    What if I am applying for a different job class (e.g., paraprofessional applying to become a teacher; teacher applying to become administrator)? Please apply using the existing applications in Munis; the transfer application does not work when applying for promotions or other jobs in different job classes than your current role.
     
    If I am interested in a transfer, are there steps I should take before completing the Employee Transfer Application? Before completing the application, we strongly encourage staff to speak with their current principal. Doing so gives both parties the opportunity to discuss the interest in transferring, opportunities for remaining at the school, and share an understanding of next steps.
     
    How do I use the Employee Transfer Application? 
    • The Employee Transfer Application is available through Employee Self-Service, which you can access here. 

    • The log-in tab for ESS is found in the top right corner of the page. Click on the Login icon. You will be prompted to enter your Username and Password to enter Employee Self Service (ESS). You must login in order to see posted transfer positions.

    • Click Employment Opportunities on the left side of the window. All available positions in the school division will be visible as you scroll down the page.  

    • Positions available for transfers are those with For Transfer Applicants Only in the posting.

    • Click Apply to complete the transfer application for the position for which you want to be considered.

    • If you have an application on file in Munis, the application will open, and most of your information will auto fill. Please double check all information for accuracy. At the end of each page, click Save for Later before continuing to the next section. The Applicant’s Authorization Statement must be completed. Click on Review Application. If all information is complete and correct, click on Submit Application.

    • If you have not completed an application in Munis, click on Create a new account. Type in your first name, last name, zip code, and email address. Enter the validation numbers, and click on Create Account. Please save your PIN to access your account in the future. Click Continue. At the end of each page, click Save for Later before continuing to the next section. The Applicant’s Authorization Statement must be completed. Click on Review Application. If all information is complete and correct, click on Submit Application.

    • You will see a green circle with a check at the top of the screen showing your application has been submitted.

    • Saved Applications refers to those applications that have not been submitted. Once an application is submitted, it no longer appears in Saved Applications.

    • You only need to apply to each position per location one time. For example, if a position is filled at Barrett Elementary and another vacancy for the same position occurs at Barrett Elementary, your application will remain in the pool of candidates for consideration for the 2020-2021 school year.

    • You must click Apply for each transfer position for which you want to be considered. For example, there is an English position at Colonial Forge and HH Poole. In order to be considered for each, you must apply to each location. There is not a general application for transfers, and you may not submit a transfer application until a position is posted.

    • Completion of the online transfer application shall serve as the official notification of your interest in being considered for a transfer. Accordingly, please refrain from making additional contacts (e-mail, telephone, etc) to school administrators. As a professional courtesy, employees wishing to transfer should notify their current school administration.

    Additional Information:

    • Employees will notify principals of their interest in a specific position posted for the location by using the Munis – Employee Self Service Transfer application.

    • Specific vacancies for the 2020-2021 school year will be posted from January 27, 2020 through June 19, 2020.

    • A teacher transfer fair will be held later this Spring. More information will be sent out regarding this fair once the details are finalized.

    • Transfer vacancies will be updated regularly as positions become available. It is the employee’s responsibility to check the job posting for updates, as they may change daily.

    • Teachers and Paraprofessionals must apply to a specific position listed in Employment Opportunities in order to be considered for a transfer.  If a transfer application is not completed, you will not be considered for a transfer.

    • Administrators will contact selected candidates for interviewing. Administrators are not required to interview an internal candidate for any position.

    • All offers for transfer will be made by Human Resources.
