Administrative Procedures

Administrative Procedure 431

Notice of Vacant Support Staff Positions

Background

From time to time, continuing support staff positions become vacant or are created.  The purpose of this Administrative Procedure is to ensure that such vacancies are brought to the attention of current support staff, so as to enable them to express interest in the vacant position, within the time period advertised in the career posting.

In order to promote the career development of support staff members, as positions become vacant or are newly created, notice of such positions will be circulated to support staff members.

Procedures

  1. When advertising a vacant continuing support staff position, the Lloydminster Public School Division will notify internal staff via an email; it is the responsibility of the employee to view the position posting through this outlet.  The Lloydminster Public School Division will determine if the posting should be posted externally at the same time as it is posted internally. The notice will outline the location, nature, and hours associated with the vacant position, and the date by which interest must be expressed.
  2. Staff members, who wish, may express interest in a vacant position by submitting their application via the career application portal on the Lloydminster Public School Division website.
  3. All requests for transfers will be considered in light of the overall operational requirements of the Lloydminster Public School Division. It should be noted that in light of the need for continuity of assignments of educational assistants to particular students, the provisions of this procedure will not normally be applied to new or vacant educational assistant positions during the school year.
  4. With the approval of the Director of Education, support staff members may be transferred to suitable positions at any time in order to meet the operational requirements of the Lloydminster Public School Division.
