February 2017

EGUSD Transfer Pilot Extended

As districts around us begin to face a shortage in credentialed teachers, vying for the best is becoming very competitive. It is a joint interest to recruit and hire educators sooner rather than later. Therefore, EGEA and EGUSD have extended last year's agreement altering the traditional transfer process for another year. This process will begin on March 2nd with a email from the district announcing the start of the transfer process. Like last year, there will be a series of 10 transfer rounds throughout the spring. Refer to the dates in the chart below for a detailed timeline of this process.
