This flier is an attempt by BFT to answer some of the most frequently asked questions about voluntary (teacher-initiated) transfers. For more information please contact your Site Rep.
Q: Do I have automatic voluntary transfer rights under our current contract?
Q: How do I find out about transfer opportunities?
Q: What do I do if I want to request a voluntary transfer?
A: You should complete the Transfer Request form that comes with the posting by the deadline specified in the posting and email it to Brent Daniels, Director of Personnel. You should include a brief email with your form asking for confirmation that your form has been received.
Q: Should I tell my principal that I am requesting a transfer?
A: If you are a permanent teacher you should cc your principal on the email. If you are a temporary or probationary teacher you should consult with your Site Rep on this question.
Q: If more than one teacher applies for a vacant position which candidate is selected?
A: The selection of a candidate is at the district’s discretion. An outside candidate may be chosen even if a current BUSD teacher applies.
