Teacher Aide & Teaching Assistant Transfer Information
The decision to transfer to a new school is personal and may be based on a variety of reasons. Perhaps you are looking for a change in instructional focus, program options, a new school theme, or even a more convenient location for your life. If you are interested participating in the transfer process, either voluntary or as a result of budgetary changes, please read the following information carefully. Please keep in mind that staffing is a fluid and on-going process. Staffing is affected by changes in enrollment, building needs, staffing levels, budgets, resignations/retirements/promotions and program changes.
Teacher Aides and Teaching Assistants have the ability to submit a request to the Human Resources Department for voluntary transfer by June 30, 2019. Human Resources will then review the requests, and work with school administrators to identify staffing assignments. Aides and Assistants will be notified of assignments via phone, email or mail beginning the week of August 26, 2019. Please use this link Request to Update Information if you need to notify Human Resources of a change in your contact information.
