Stevensville School District


Assignments, Reassignments, Transfers

The Superintendent may assign, reassign, and/or transfer positions and duties of all staff.  Teachers will be assigned at the levels and in the subjects for which they are licensed and endorsed, or for which they are enrolled in an internship as defined in ARM 10.55.602 and meet the requirements of ARM 10.55.607.  The Superintendent will provide for a system of assignment, reassignment, and transfer of classified staff, including voluntary transfers and promotions.  Nothing in this policy prevents reassignment of a staff member during a school year.

Classified Staff

The District retains the right of assignment, reassignment, and transfer.  Written notice of reassignment or involuntary transfer will be given to the employee.  The staff member will be given opportunity to discuss the proposed transfer or reassignment with the Superintendent.


Notice of their teaching assignments relative to grade level, building, and subject area will be given to teachers before the beginning of the school year.  All District employees assigned extracurricular activities as a contract obligation must honor this obligation as a condition of employment unless released from this responsibility by the Board.

Provisions governing vacancies, promotions, and voluntary or involuntary transfers may be found in negotiated agreements or employee handbooks.
