Teacher Transfer Process

 

Teacher Transfer Process

Welcome to our new electronic transfer application!

All requests for transfer and increases in time must be submitted electronically by March 29th at 4:00 pm.

 

The transfer process remains relatively the same with an updated online application. Important steps are outlined in the list below:
  • You must use your school district email when filling out the form.
  • To fill out the form please indicate your school order of preference by typing numbers in the preference box (1,2,3,4 etc) then select the schools and the grade levels that you want to be considered for.
  • For elementary, under the subject box, you just need to type in classroom teacher and/or any of the non enrolling positions.
  • For secondary subject areas you are able to type in all the subjects you want into the subject box but the amount of characters is limited. This can then be copied and pasted into subsequent school’s subject box if the information is the same.
  • To move quickly through each school line you can tab over and hit the space bar for the check mark or just click inside each box.
  • Once you have entered all your information, you will then hit the submit button. You will receive a copy of what you entered to your school district email. If you realize that you have made a mistake, you may go back in and redo the form then submit again but you must do it right away as there is a time limit. Once that time limit has been reached then you will not be able to make any changes or submit again.
  • The form does not show seniority or FTE owed, this information is held by HR and will be used in the transfer process.
  • If you have missed a required field on the form, you will be prompted to make the correction before you can submit.
  • If you do need to make a change, you will need to contact Nicole at hreducation@sd79.bc.ca and she can manually go into your information and make the changes for you.

If you have any questions about filling out the form please contact Nicole at hreducation@sd79.bc.ca or by phone at 250-748-0321 Ext. 223.
