Voluntary Transfers (Teachers and Paras)
Each year, Fort Bend ISD opens a Voluntary Transfer Window for teachers and instructional paraprofessionals who are interested in transferring to another campus within FBISD.
The Voluntary Transfer Window for the 2022-23 school year will run from January 10 – March 25, 2022, and current teachers and instructional aides who are interested in a voluntary, lateral transfer must complete an online transfer request.
Please note that candidates must meet eligibility criteria for a Voluntary Transfer, and this process does not apply for candidates who are currently in pool positions, such as Fine Arts, PE Teachers, Librarians, Instructional Coaches, etc.
Voluntary Transfer Information
To be eligible for a Voluntary Transfer, all teachers and paraprofessionals in non-pool positions must:
- Have a minimum of two (2) consecutive years of service, in the same position, at their current campus as of June 1, 2022. *
- Have demonstrated success on T-TESS, or professional evaluation, with no indicators of “Improvement Needed” for the current school year.
- Not be on a H-1B Visa
*As an exception, an employee may have less than two years of service to be eligible for a lateral voluntary transfer if:
- The employee was placed by HR in the assignment on the current campus due to the identification of excess
- The employee is currently on an EDGE or ELC campus
- The employee was reassigned from the Virtual Learning Program (VLP) or Remote Conferencing (RC) to a campus that was other than original 2021-2022 home-campus
Please note that transfers are for lateral moves only. To be considered for a different position, you must complete an application and go through the selection process. Application does not guarantee that a transfer will be granted, as all requests are subject to campus vacancies and their selection process.
IMPORTANT: Please note that as an internal candidate, you can only access the application process through the District network or VPN.
Voluntary Transfer Information Process
If you are interested in being considered for a voluntary transfer, you must submit your online request by March 25, 2022 by putting your name on the transfer list.
Campus leaders will have access to the transfer request list and may contact you for an interview based on campus vacancies. If an internal candidate is selected for a voluntary transfer, principals will submit change forms from January 18, 2022 – May 16, 2022.
Nothing But Networking
Nothing But Networking – Exclusive Event for FBISD Employees!
Note: Fort Bend ISD hosts an annual “Nothing But Networking” Event each spring to give our internal candidates an opportunity to meet with campus administrators. If you are interested in being considered for a Voluntary Transfer, this is a great opportunity to network with campus leaders. Additional information about this event will be shared as details are finalized.
