Voluntary/Involuntary Paraeducator Transfer Season
Each spring the paraeducator transfer season occurs, providing permanent employees the opportunity to transfer to other schools and locations. In addition, employees returning from leave or those who have been involuntarily transferred have an opportunity to interview for vacancies for which they are qualified and interested.
