Partner Teachers attend master's degree coursework which is partially subsidized by the NYC Department of Education. PTs are still responsible for a contribution toward their degree, but this is not upfront or out of pocket expense.
2024 Partner Teachers are responsible for $12,000 toward the cost of their master’s degree. Partner Teachers in the Bronx cohort are responsible for $10,500 towards the cost of their master's degree. These costs are deducted from each DOE paycheck broken down in 44 consecutive, equal installments beginning in the fall once PTs start teaching full-time and earning their paycheck.
