Know Your Rights: Teacher Transfer Policies

Note that these policies only apply to teachers. Support personnel have different transfer policies, especially in Caddo, and less rigid deadlines. 

Caddo: 
 
As per Policy File GCI-R, teachers will receive a transfer request packet no later than the first week of February of the current school year. Transfer request
packets will also be made available in the Certified Personnel Department at Central Office.
A. Transfer packets will include a current vacancy list which will include all positions staffed by non-certified teachers.
B. Updated vacancy lists will be available in the Certified Personnel Department. Updated lists will be sent to schools for posting.
C. Certified Teachers will be responsible for returning the Teacher Request for Transfer form to the Certified Personnel Department by the end of
the work day on March 1st of the current school year.
Note that in CADDO, you DO NOT need your principal’s signature in order to submit your transfer application. 
Your personnel file/record is the ONLY thing a principal looks at if you are considering transferring to another school or another parish. Make sure you know what is in your personnel file, and that you write rebuttals for everything that goes in your personnel file.
