Yes. When the District opens a new school and staffs positions at that school from current employees, consideration will be given to:
* the overall needs of the District
* desire of the employee to transfer
* years of experience in the District
* credentials held
*whether or not the transfer was involuntary for other than disciplinary reasons
If you are involuntarily transferred for reasons other than disciplinary reasons from one building to another, you will have the right to transfer back to your former building if and when a position becomes available in your area of certification. Such right to return is rendered void once you exert that right and are returned to your former building from which you were transferred. In the event that two or more Bargaining Unit Members have been involuntarily transferred as listed above and only one vacancy occurs, the Bargaining Unit Member with the greatest seniority in that area of certification will be awarded the position. The remaining such Bargaining Unit Members will retain their right to transfer as positions become available.
It is understood that the reasons for transfers, except as noted in the red paragraph above, will not be subject to the grievance procedure.
