Employee Transfer Process

  • 2018-2019 Employee Transfer Process

    The transfer process may be used by full-time contracted teachers and full-time contracted paraprofessionals only.  The transfer application is for full-time teachers pursuing other full-time teaching positions and full-time paraprofessionals pursuing other full-time paraprofessional positions. They may request consideration for a transfer at any time during the transfer window (February 20, 2018 – June 30, 2018). Part-time, hourly, and temporary employees are not eligible for the transfer process.  Part-time, hourly, and temporary employees seeking full-time positions should use the licensed or service applications available online. Full time employees pursuing different positions should use the appropriate application. For example, a teacher pursuing an assistant principal position should complete the Administrator Application.
