Employees with Level Changes

If you are planning on turning in paperwork for a level change, it needs to be turned into the Superintendent's office.


In order to move on the salary schedule the deadline for level changes are:

a. June 30, 2016 for teachers on July 1, 2016 contracts

b. August 5, 2016 for teachers with August 2016 contracts



The Horizontal Level Change Forms can be accessed through the Document Center. You will also need to attach an original transcript with the form.

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.
