Q&A
Q:
I am a custodian assigned to an elementary school on the North side of the city. I live in the East Side . What is the procedure for transferring to another school that is closer to my house?
A:

A letter stating that you are requesting a transfer must be turned in to the Plant Operations Department. The transfer letter may be a personal note written by the employee or it can be a Transfer Request Form that is available at the Plant Operations Department. The information on the letter or form must include your name, the school you are presently assigned to and the school or area you are requesting to be assigned to. If you have no preference then state that on your letter or Form. A request for transfer cannot be submitted until you have completed your ninety – day probation period.

Once your letter is on file you may contact the Plant Operations Department periodically to find out which schools have vacancies. It is your responsibility to contact the school that you would like to transfer to and schedule an interview for the vacant custodial position. Principals have the option to choose who they would like to interview. If you are chosen to be interviewed and are selected for the position the Principal will notify Plant Operations.

The Plant Operations Department will in turn contact your principal and inform him/her that you are transferring to another school. A reporting date will be established within a two week period and a personnel status change will be submitted to the Classified Personnel Office.

I have just completed my probationary employment period with the District and would like to know when I will receive my uniforms.
A:
The goal is to provide uniform items every other year to classified employees. This is dependent upon the required funds being approved as part of the budget process. There is no provision to purchase uniforms during in-between year when funding is not provided. Plant Operations is the designated Department responsible to coordinate the purchase of uniforms.

I have a family situation which requires my work hours to be changed from night shift to day shift.

The Principal at each campus is the responsible supervisor to designate custodial work hours. The desired work ratio of employees between day shift and night shift is 25 percent for day shift and 75 percent for the night shift.
