Maspeth High School Teachers Earn Tenure


Gaining tenure is an important milestone. 

Under New York State law, public school teachers must serve a probationary period of four years and a day from the date of their appointment. Upon completion of their probationary period, teachers are granted tenure. Tenure isn't automatically granted. To be granted tenure, teachers must:

  • Be on track to complete all state certification and city licensing requirements;
  • file an application and receive professional certification;
  • have a record of acceptable service during their probationary period; and
  • be recommended for tenure by their principal.
