1 Elgin Teachers Association ©2013 Transfer and Reassignment As defined by The Elgin Agreement

2 Elgin Teachers Association © REASSIGNMENT A reassignment shall be defined as a change in grade level and/or subject area assignments. Excerpt… When a reassignment is necessary due to a reduction in the number of teachers at a grade level and/or subject area, all volunteers shall be considered first. In the absence of volunteers who are selected under (a) above: Teachers will be reassigned in the order as identified in Seniority by Area, except where a higher ranking teacher among the statutory groupings possesses demonstrable qualifications which may allow for his/her reassignment. If a teacher has an assignment in more than one grade level/department, the teacher is considered to be in both grade levels/departments. For example, an elementary teacher who teaches a 2/3 split is considered to be in both grades 2 and 3 presuming they are qualified to hold each position. If the 2/3 split is eliminated, the affected teacher is considered to be in both grade levels and can exercise his/her choice to remain at either grade level if he/she has more seniority than the other equally qualified teachers at the second and third grades.
