V. Transfer of Teachers
1. A teacher may be transferred to a comparable position within the same community when it is deemed necessary but shall not be transferred from one community to another without the teacher’s consent. Any transfer may be made with the mutual agreement of the school board and the teacher.
2. In filling vacant positions in accordance with Clause 6.03, the school board shall be required to accommodate transfer request(s) from teachers already employed in a continuing contract with the school board. If more than one teacher makes a request, all of whom are capable, preference shall be given to the teacher with the greatest seniority. [Feb/8-9/01] [JC Feb/01] [2001 BGM]
