Transfers Request Process

Teachers: There is no longer a March 1st deadline to request a transfer to another building. Instead, all openings will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

Process: (Transfer requests are now done on TalentEd. No paperwork needs to be sent to the principal)

A. If an opening becomes available in your own building that you are interested in, you just need to talk to your principal about the process.

B. If an opening becomes available in a different building, then you need to fill out an internal application in TalentEd so that principal and Central Office know you have an interest.

There are no guarantees on transfer requests. Every situation is different and we will try to do what is best for kids in the long run.

Please contact Bethany Collins if you have questions on filling out an internal application. x2401.
