Is a teacher considered an employee of the city?

I believe we are state employees. Unless itís a private school, of course,,then you work only for the school.

In my area school districts are separate taxing bodies and the voters of the district elect the school board. The city (or town or county) does not have authority over the schools. Therefore, a teacher is a school district employee.

In my state, the school budget is determined through both state and federal funds. I think that we are considered state employees.

In Georgia we are

State employees who work for

each independent school district (in a city) BUT

school districts are NOT apart of the city government.

I would say just a district employee. However, I did notice that last year when the Denver mayor put in a vaccine mandate, it impacted Denver Public Schools employees, as they were considered "city employees." It did not impact any other district, including those schools who happen to have buildings in Denver county- it was only DPS. Possibly they're the only district with ALL of their buildings within city limits? I'm not really sure how that all worked, honestly.

In my district we are employees of the district. Not state nor city employees.

Interesting! Based on our retirement system, public school teachers in Ohio would be working for the state. So state employees. However, districts do the hiring.

In NC, all public school teachers are state employees. Our pension is a NC state pension.

In Kentucky we are state employees. We are hired by the local district, but follow all of the state and regulations. There are local taxes that are part of the money used to run the school, but we are not city/county run by any means.

Here in MS we are state employees. I work for a county school, not a city one (although there are city public schools as well), so I'm an employee of the county school district but my retirement comes from the state.
