RE:Staff assignment and transfer
Staff assignments are based on the instructional needs of the students and leadership needs of a school building. Reassignments can be initiated due to enrollment, new programs, certification, budget, skills or staff requests. Often staff are approached about new openings and are given the opportunity to seek a voluntary transfer if they have the correct credentials. All school personnel are appointed to be employed in Harrisonburg City Schools and not a specific location. By law, the superintendent has the authority to reassign or transfer staff members. Very few transfers occur each year.
