Spring Surplus 2022
by Jessica Dunn, Executive Director
The surplus process guarantees ongoing employment if a school or program experiences a decline in enrollment. That means, if your school or department is overstaffed and needs to downsize for the next school year, the employee(s) selected as surplus based on multiple factors including seniority, will keep their employment but be placed at another school or location within Granite School District. You can read the negotiated language about the surplus process in the Professional Agreement, sections 16.4 and 16.5. This year’s dates for the GSD spring surplus are as follows:
Other Important Dates:
Elementary principals will notify teachers of their tentative teaching assignment by April 14. Secondary principals will notify teachers by May 1.
Starting at noon on March 15, elementary postings will begin. Secondary positions will begin to be posted on March 17, exact time TBD. Teachers who are interested in applying to other jobs, need to check Frontline on a daily basis.
July 11 is the last day to transfer to a different GSD school location as well as the last day to resign without getting fined for not giving a 30-day notice.
All candidates hired after July 11 will have to come from outside the district.
If you have questions or concerns about how any of these processes impacts you, please contact your Association Representative (AR) or call our office at 801-266-4411.
