Voluntary Transfer Process
Eligible certified personnel may request consideration for reassignment or transfer once a year during the voluntary transfer period. Each school year, the Atlanta Public Schools (APS) leadership team evaluates the feasibility of offering certified staff (i.e. Teachers, Media Specialists and Counselors) the opportunity to submit a request for voluntary transfer to another school location within APS. In addition, if the APS leadership elects to offer voluntary transfer opportunities, the process and timeline are developed and communicated to APS employees by the Human Resources division each school year.
