Recruitment FAQs

What is the process for transferring from one school location to another?

Open transfer opportunities are made available to school-based employees at the close of the school year. The open transfer period where employees do not need the permission of their current Principal is from the close of the school year through July 15. Learn about the Internal Teacher Transfer Process.

Transfers made after July 15 must have the approval of the losing Principal. Interested employees should contact the school administrator that has an open position and express an interest to transfer. If the school administrator and your current school administrator consent to your transfer, Human Resources will be notified and will officially complete the transfer process.
