ASSIGNMENTS, REASSIGNMENTS AND TRANSFERS Policy Code: 7440
All assignments and transfers to schools are the responsibility of the superintendent. In-school assignments are the responsibility of the principal. The board must be promptly notified of all transfers authorized by the superintendent.
The superintendent may assign school personnel in any manner that he or she deems appropriate, consistent with legal requirements. In assigning professional staff to the alternative school, the superintendent shall consider the experience and evaluating ratings of professional staff, as provided in policy 3470-4305, Alternative Schools.
TRANSFER / REASSIGNMENT
Voluntary and involuntary transfers will be made in accordance with course requirements, fluctuating enrollments, allotment, efforts to improve student performance, and the general welfare of the school district. The interests and aspirations of employees will be considered in making assignments and transfer decisions; however, such interests must be weighed against what is in the best interest of the students, school or school district. Employees will be informed of transfer decisions as soon as reasonably feasible.
The superintendent will establish and communicate administrative procedures for voluntary and involuntary transfers. The chief personnel officer will oversee the transfer process. An employee may appeal a transfer decision to the board. The board generally will uphold transfer decisions made in accordance with this policy that are not arbitrary, capricious, political or discriminatory.
