Current Bill Summary


SB 505 – This act prohibits the superintendent of an unaccredited or provisionally accredited school district from transferring a teacher, per the teacher's request, to another school if the principal of the receiving school refuses the transfer. School boards in unaccredited or provisionally accredited school districts cannot adopt a policy that assigns priority for transfers to teachers who request a transfer after April 15th in the year prior to the year the transfer would become effective.

This act is substantially similar to 1047 (2007).
