Campus eTransfer Applications

Available March 18 –June 5, 2019

Transfer requests will not be considered until all surplus teachers have been placed.

Employees interested in applying for a campus transfer may access the eTransfer application (internal application) from the Birdville website beginning March 18. Please note: The eTransfer postings are generic and not an indication there is a definite opening at each campus. As openings occur, principals will review eTransfer requests and contact staff they wish to consider. Postings will remain listed on the Job Board through June 5, 2019.

Resignation Deadline

TO: All Contract Personnel

FROM: Paige Curry Director of Human Resources

DATE: April 2, 2019

SUBJECT: Resignation Deadline

As a reminder to you, the last date for resignation for contract personnel is “not later than the 45th day before the first day of instruction of the following school year.” The first day of instruction for 2019 – 2020 is August 19, 2019; therefore, the last day for all contract personnel to resign is July 5, 2019.

Following are the citations in the Texas Education Code that refer to resignations: Sec. 21.105 (a) states: “A teacher employed under a probationary contract for the following school year may relinquish the position and leave the employment of the district at the end of the school year without penalty by filing with the board of trustees or its designee a written resignation not later than the 45th day before the first day of instruction of the following school year. A written resignation mailed by prepaid certified or registered mail to the president of the board of trustees or the board’s designee at the post office address of the district is considered filed at the time of mailing.” Sec. 21.160 (a) concerns continuing contract teachers and reads the same except for “A teacher employed under a continuing contract may…” Sec. 21.210 (a) is the section on term contract employees and again, it is essentially the same except for the insertion of term contract. If you are resigning, please deliver your letter of resignation to the Human Resource
