This year’s Window of Mutual Consent (or transfer window) opens March 1, 2022. Transfer-eligible employees may begin submitting internal applications through the Applicant Tracking System (ATS) today for positions in which they are interested and eligible.
For employees seeking a voluntary transfer, the window will remain open for ten weeks – until Friday, May 6th. To be eligible for voluntary transfer, employees must submit an internal application by Friday, April 15th for consideration. After May 6th, any remaining surplus employees may continue seeking new positions through mutual consent until centralized placements are made by the Human Capital Office in July. Hiring Managers will have access to transfer-eligible employees through the ATS on a rolling-basis as employees indicate interest. Completed internal applications from transfer-eligible employees will be reviewed by the Recruitment and Selection team to confirm eligibility for the job title(s) to which they have applied within three business days of submission.
After the school-based budget reconciliation process concludes in late April, we will begin posting a list of projected school-year 2022-2023 vacancies on the Jobs page of our website so that employees can begin reaching out to Hiring Managers to discuss their transfer interests. The vacancies change in real time as positions are filled, and we will update the posted vacancy list every other week.
Indicating Interest to Transfer and the Recommendation to Hire Form
The Applicant Tracking System (ATS) can be accessed by scrolling to the bottom of the Jobs Page on the City Schools website and clicking Ready to Apply? The ATS is the vehicle for employees to indicate their interest in transferring, for transfer-eligible employees (i.e., voluntary transfers, surplus employees, and employees from closing school locations) to be viewable to our Hiring Managers, and through which Recommendation to Hire (RTH) forms will be issued by Hiring Managers and accepted by employees. As always, all recommendations to hire are subject to the review and approval of the Human Capital Office.
Employees seeking to transfer must only complete the required fields on the short profile section and apply to the job titles in which they are interested and eligible (if interested in teaching in two different content areas and dual-certified, for example, employees would apply to two different teacher positions; most employees will apply to the posting with their current job title). Though not required, we strongly encourage BTU Teacher Chapter employees and BTU PSRP Charter employees to upload a current resume for Hiring Managers to review.
For BTU Teacher Chapter employees, BTU PSRP Chapter and L44 employees, click here for the steps to complete an internal application for SY 2022-2023. If you already have an ATS account, there is no need to create another one; simply use your current username and password. Finally, make sure that you are applying for SY 22-23 positions (as opposed to SY 21-22). As a reminder, you may complete every step of the internal application process on a computer, smart phone, or any other device with a web browser and internet access. If you have any questions about submitting an internal application, please email the Human Capital Office at HumanCapital@bcps.k12.md.us.
Once you have submitted your complete application, please allow three business days for it to be screened for eligibility. Then, Hiring Managers will be able to view your application.
Virtual Hiring Fair
The Human Capital Office will host its first virtual hiring fair in late April to facilitate mutual consent between Hiring Managers and transfer-eligible employees. Additional virtual hiring events will be held in May and June for surplus employees to continue seeking to identify a new assignment for the 2022-23 school year. Unless you have already accepted a transfer offer, we strongly encourage you to attend all virtual hiring events.
