Tenured teachers who are interested in applying for vacancies must submit an online application for each position. Probationary teachers in their fifth or sixth semester of probation, and National Board Certified Teachers (NBCT) serving in their last semester of probation, may only apply for vacancies in the first TATP posting.

Once an offer to transfer has been accepted by a teacher, any subsequent offers to transfer will not be allowed.

Please keep in mind that teachers are unable to "transfer" between a DOE school and public charter school (PCS).

This change is considered "movement," which involves resigning and applying to a different employer.
