Active and Retired Teachers
The CT Teachers’ Retirement Board (CTRB), charged under Connecticut law with the management of the retirement system for public school teachers, is comprised of three ex officio members, five public members and six teachers. The teachers, four active and two retired, are elected by their peers for overlapping four-year terms. Board meetings are held regularly during the school year.
The terms of two incumbent active teachers and two retired teachers will expire on June 30, 2023, although they are eligible to apply for any open seat for which they are qualified. The term of the candidates who acquire these seats will run from July 1, 2023, thru June 30, 2027.
To be considered for an active teacher seat, candidates must be an active teacher and obtain electronic signatures of at least two hundred (200) members of the System who are not retired). Candidates must also provide a biographical sketch of one hundred fifty (150) words or less. Non-biographical information, such as declarations of belief of platform-type statements will be edited from the candidate’s statement.
