Tenure:    CGS 10-151 Teacher Tenure Law explained

10-151 covers tenure. Out of state service doesn’t count toward tenure except for priority school districts. There is language in 10-151 that states: “Any certified teacher or administrator employed by a local or regional board of education for a school district identified as a priority school district pursuant to section 10-266p may attain tenure after ten months of employment in such priority school district, if such certified teacher or administrator previously attained tenure with another local or regional board of education in this state or another state.” Westport is not a priority school district.
