WELCOME TO THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION ONLINE EXCESSED STAFF SELECTION SYSTEM. THE OPEN MARKET TRANSFER PERIOD HAS ENDED FOR THE 2018-2019 SCHOOL YEAR.
This site is now only for use by current UFT EXCESSED STAFF. If you are in excess, please read below for critical information about communications about the first rotational assignment
and tips for your ongoing job search.
Important Steps for UFT Excessed Staff - ACTION REQUIRED
ENTER/UPDATE CONTACT INFORMATION IN ESSS: It is essential for employees placed in excess to immediately update their contact information in the Excessed Staff Support System (ESSS).
ESSS is the primary portal for obtaining information regarding positions, job search support, and instructions about what school location to report.
INFORMATION ON WHERE TO REPORT ON THE 1ST DAY OF SCHOOL: Assignment locations will be finalized in late August and will be viewable via the “My Current Status” link.
ATRs will not report to the school they reported to in June. Therefore, all excessed teachers/employees must check to verify reporting locations for school opening.
The Excessed Staff Selection System is for use by staff in all regularly appointed UFT titles who are in excess, including Teachers, Guidance Counselors, School Secretaries, Lab Specialists,
School Psychologists, Speech Improvement, School Social Workers, Attendance Teachers, and UFT Paraprofessionals. Click here to view
