I. District vacancies will be advertised via Internet.
1.Postings will be open from Wednesday morning until the following Tuesday at 5:00 p.m. If the position is posted in-district only, an administrator will have the option to select a candidate for the open position after 5:00 p.m. on the Friday following the posting date. However, the length of the advertising period may vary depending upon the vacant position and the time of year.

3.Transfers may be made upon recommendation of the immediate supervisor with proper administrative approval. However, a supervising Educational Services Center administrator may recommend such transfers without the supervisor's approval if such a transfer is in the best interest of Campbell County School District.
IV. Any educational support personnel transferring from one position category to a different position category may retain credit for all earned in-district experience but will retain credit for previously approved out-of-district experience only if the experience is directly related to the new position.
V. Reassignment to a vacant position is justified if it is necessary as an accommodation under the ADA. This type of transfer should only be considered when accommodation within an employee's current position is not feasible. The employee should be reassigned to an equivalent position in terms of salary and benefits.
The District may reassign an individual to a position with a lower salary if there is no accommodation that would enable the employee to remain in the current position and there are no vacant, equivalent positions for which the employee is qualified, with or without reasonable accommodation. The Human Resources Manager may recommend such a transfer without supervisor approval if he/she determines the transfer is in the best interest of Campbell County School District.
VI. Other administrative/supervisory guidelines may be additionally applied if such fall within School Board policy.
