Applicants must share their subject area preferences as part of our online application but it is not guaranteed that an applicant will be assigned to a subject area that has been preferenced. Applicants are evaluated for subject area assignment based on their academic background, their preferences and their self-reported Spanish language fluency. Candidates are then assigned to a subject area based on the areas they are qualified to teach and the hiring needs of the NYC Public Schools.
Our subject area eligibility requirements are linked here. If you do not meet the academic requirements then you cannot be assigned to the subject area. The academic requirements are determined by our university partners and the New York State Education Department. They are not determined by the NYC Public Schools or the NYC Teaching Collaborative. These academic requirements cannot be negotiated.
Applicants will learn their subject area assignment if they are invited to a Phone Interview or Selection Day.
Please note that the subject areas offered by the NYC Teaching Collaborative can change from year to year as the hiring needs of NYC Public Schools shift and change. We ask that applicants for the NYC Teaching Collaborative remain flexible regarding their subject areas, as our mission as a program is to meet the greatest teacher staffing needs of NYC.
