PROFESSIONAL STAFF ASSIGNMENTS AND TRANSFERS

 

The district recognizes that assigning qualified staff members to positions throughout the district is essential to providing an excellent educational program for all students. Every effort will be made to assign district staff to areas of the greatest need for the benefit of the students. The district will accept requests for transfer from employees, but will only honor those requests when it is in the best interest of the district and the educational program to do so.

 

Definitions

Assignment — Placement in a particular position or building by the district.

Transfer — Reassignment by the district at the request of the employee.

Assignments

The Board directs the superintendent to assess the professional staffing needs of the district annually and to assign professional staff as necessary to meet those needs. Although the superintendent will take the employee’s expressed preference into consideration, the ultimate decision must be based on the district’s needs. The superintendent may reassign staff members to different positions or buildings at any time, including after a contract has been signed or in the middle of the school year.

Transfers

Professional staff may request a transfer to a different position or building by submitting the appropriate form to the superintendent or designee. Transfer requests for the following school year must be submitted on or before March 1.

Transfers in the middle of the year are discouraged and will be considered only in extraordinary circumstances. Professional staff requesting a transfer in the middle of the year must submit the appropriate form and discuss the request with both the employee’s immediate supervisor and the superintendent or designee. Although the superintendent will take the employee’s expressed preference into consideration, the ultimate decision must be based on the district’s needs.
