Special Edition: New Certificated Voluntary Transfer Process
Voluntary Transfer - Spring 2013
It is anticipated that the voluntary transfer process for certificated staff will begin at midnight on Monday, May 13. The final posting will be the second Monday in June. MPS will be using our on-line application system (AppliTrack) for schools to post vacancies and for certificated staff to request interviews. Using AppliTrack for our voluntary transfer process is new this year. CLICK HERE for step by step instructions if you are a certificated employee interested in voluntarily transferring from your current school or department.
Voluntary transfer candidates may transfer only to a position of the same contract amount as currently held (i.e.: a ½ contract employee may transfer only to a ½ position).
Certificated staff must hold the appropriate certification and be highly qualified for the posted position at the time of application to be granted an interview.
Exclusionary employees (one-semester or one-year-only contracts) may not participate in the voluntary transfer process unless they have been "rehired" from exclusion for the new school year.
Any teacher who qualifies and wishes to be considered for counseling, psychologist, SLP, or administrative positions must submit the appropriate job application online. Moves from teaching positions to counseling, psychologist, SLP, or administrative positions are not handled through the voluntary transfer process.
Job Posting and Application
Positions available for voluntary transfer will be posted on-line. CLICK HERE and go to "Internal Positions".
Only positions of 0.5 contract or more that are funded by District monies are posted for the voluntary process.
Positions will be posted Mondays at midnight and will remain open through midnight Wednesday of that week. Positions will be posted on Tuesday the week of Memorial Day.
To be considered for a voluntary transfer position, you must submit an internal application through our online application page within the time that the position is posted.
As new positions are posted weekly, log back into your AppliTrack account and choose any new positions for which you would like to be interviewed.
