SUPPORT STAFF ASSIGNMENTS AND TRANSFERS
Support staff shall be assigned to positions for which their qualifications meet the needs of the school division's operations.
Support staff personnel are entitled to initiate a transfer request for a position within their area of competence and for which they are qualified. Support staff personnel may be transferred to positions for which their qualifications best meet the needs of the school division.
ANY EMPLOYEE SEEKING A TRANSFER OF ASSIGNMENT TO ANOTHER WORK LOCATION MUST MAKE A REQUEST IN WRITING TO THE SUPERINTENDENT OR HIS/HER DESIGNEE, WITH COPIES TO THE CURRENT SUPERVISOR, USING THE APPROPRIATE FORM DISTRIBUTED ANNUALLY BY THE PERSONNEL OFFICE. THIS TYPE OF REQUEST, IF GRANTED, WILL BE CONSIDERED A VOLUNTARY TRANSFER. A CHANGE OF ASSIGNMENT WITHIN AN IMMEDIATE WORK STATION IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE IMMEDIATE SUPERVISOR.
EMPLOYEES WHO ARE MEMBERS OF THE SAME IMMEDIATE FAMILY WILL NOT BE ASSIGNED TO THE SAME SCHOOL WITHOUT PRIOR KNOWLEDGE AND APPROVAL OF THE SCHOOL BOARD UPON RECOMMENDATION OF THE DIVISION SUPERINTENDENT. THE ABSENCE OF A POSITION IN A DIFFERENT SCHOOL, HOWEVER, SHALL NOT BE THE BASIS FOR REFUSAL TO EMPLOY OR TERMINATION OF EMPLOYMENT OF AN OTHERWISE QUALIFIED EMPLOYEE UNDER THIS POLICY, UNLESS THERE EXISTS A FACTUAL BASIS THAT SUCH EMPLOYMENT IN THE SAME SCHOOL WOULD BE DETRIMENTAL TO THE SYSTEM.
