The Office of Teacher Recruitment and Quality uses the preference data that you provide to share your resume and contact information with hiring managers who are sourcing candidates with your certification. Maintaining up to date preferences ensures that hiring managers receive the contact information of candidates that are interested in working in their region. You may revisit this portion of your application, as we anticipate your preferences may change.
Our application asks you for both your borough preference, as well as to select regions within boroughs. We hope that this will enable you to specify if you are interested in working in specific parts of a borough if not the whole borough.
To help inform your preferences, we included the approximate percentage of candidates who were hired in each region in this past year so that you can make informed choices. While it is to your advantage to select as many regions as you feel comfortable with, we also do not want to waste your time, as well as the time of hiring managers, so we encourage you to think realistically about your commute when selecting your preferred regions.
We anticipate that your preferences might change over time, either due to your personal plans (relocating), or because you have learned more about our school districts through a Learn about the Bronx Districts or Learn about Brooklyn Districts workshop. Accordingly, you can revisit this portion of the application at any time to adjust your preferences.
**Note that District 75 is a non-geographic (citywide) district providing quality and rigorous individualized educational programs to students with significant challenges and diverse language styles in a variety of settings. While the majority of District 75 teachers are certified in Special Education, candidates with a certification in the Arts, English as a New Language, and Physical Education may also work in this district. If you believe you are interested in working in District 75 we encourage you to attend a Special Education Job Search Workshop to learn more about the District 75 settings. District 75 accounted for 18% of new hires in 2020.
