Paraeducators, Health Assistants, Security Assistants, Student Assistants and Liaisons
Eligibility and Transfer Procedures

 

A voluntary transfer is defined as a voluntary request to transfer to another building or department for the following school year. Staff on a Professional Growth Plan are not eligible for a voluntary transfer.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • To be considered for a paraeducator position at a Title 1 school, you MUST have a passing score on the ParaPro assessment or 48 college credits from an accredited college or university.
  • To be considered for a Specialized Program paraeducator position, you MUST have one (1) year of experience working with students/individuals with disabilities. 
  • For CURRENT Student Assistants, a transfer request may only be submitted for a change in location and not for a change in position. Therefore, to be considered for a paraeducator position you will need to submit an application for that position. Information to do so can be found on the HCPSS website (www.hcpss.org/employment).
Instructions
  • Only one voluntary transfer request form is needed to request a transfer to multiple schools.
  • Do not forward the link or attempt to complete a form that has been forwarded by another user. A link that has been forwarded may result in an inaccurate submission.
  • Set aside enough time to complete the form in one sitting as partially completed forms cannot be saved in the system.
  • If you are currently in more than one school, please select all schools.
  • Digitally sign and submit the form to your principal by utilizing the drop-down menu.
  • After your principal digitally signs the voluntary transfer request form, you will receive email confirmation from Applicant Tracking of your transfer request along with a link to the form that you can print for your records.

Deadline for Submission:
In order to be considered for a transfer for the upcoming school year, forms must be received by the Office of Human Resources by April 5, 2024. Requests received after April 5, 2024 will not be processed.
