Administrative Guidelines
 

3130 - ASSIGNMENT AND TRANSFER OF PROFESSIONAL STAFF

All professional staff members shall be given written notice of their building and applicable class, subject, and room assignments for the forthcoming school year not later than the last student day of the previous school year or as specified in the negotiated, collectively-bargained agreement; provided however, that if the Superintendent is delayed in the completion of such assignments by reason of emergencies, (such as questionable completion of new school construction, computer failure, abnormal professional staff member turnover or unavailability of professional staff member personnel in critical positions) the Superintendent shall provide such schedules as soon as practicable.

Transfers between schools may be enacted by the Superintendent and within a school by the principal when the needs of students, the school, or the Corporation so require. Such actions shall be in accord with the terms of the appropriate negotiated agreement.

 

A.

Involuntary Transfer

   
 

Prior to effecting an involuntary transfer of a teacher, counselor, or other nonadministrator to another school, the professional staff member shall have an interview with the "receiving principal".

   
 

In the case of a nontenured professional staff member, a joint conference of "receiving principal", "sending principal", and transferred professional staff member shall be held in the interest of assuring continuity of the evaluation process.

     
 

B.

Voluntary Transfer and Reassignment

   
 

Any professional staff member who desires a change in grade, subject assignment, or program, or who desires a transfer to another school for the following school year shall discuss the matter with his/her supervisor and thereafter shall file a written statement of such desire with the Superintendent as early in the school year as possible but not later than the last student day.

   
 

Such statement shall include the assignment desired, the reason for the transfer, and the potential benefits to be obtained. The request will be forwarded to the Superintendent along with the supervisor's recommendation. S/He shall notify the staff member and other appropriate parties of his/her decision as soon as possible. Requests for transfer or assignment within a building shall follow the same guidelines but may be acted upon by the principal, subject to review by the Superintendent.
