Transfer Application Instructions:

(Article L12.03, L12.13)

Teachers who are applying for a Transfer are also strongly encouraged to apply for the Teacher Exchange Opportunity Program (L12.17) at the same time. Applying to both increases the likelihood that the teacher will be able to move to a different school.

Bargaining Unit Members who wish to be considered for transfer to another secondary school must inform the Senior Administrator in Human Resources in writing no later than March 15 in the school year immediately prior to the school year for which the transfer shall be effective.

A teacher must have been employed by the Board for at least two (2) years prior to requesting a transfer. This provision may be waived at the Board’s exclusive discretion.

Consider the following when completing your Transfer Application form:

"I am willing to accept:"

If you select “a beginning of semester transfer only”, You will NOT be considered for any openings mid semester.


"I am willing to split my teaching time between two (2) sites"

If you select “No”, You will NOT be considered for a transfer for semester 2. (ie. Semester 1 at School A, Semester 2 at School B will NOT be possible.)


If you wish to be considered for a transfer in the future to the new school that is not yet built in Guelph please select that option. Teachers who select this option for more than 3 consecutive years will be considered for transfer before teachers who have selected this for 3 years or less when the school opens, as outlined in L12.13.

"Additional Comments"

Use this space to clarify any specific requests or additional information. Examples: I am willing to split my teaching time by semester only (sem. 1 at school A, sem. 2 at school B).


I would consider taking a leave from some of my contract time (1 period) to transfer to school B if possible. Etc.


Please ensure that you verify the information on your application prior to submitting.
