There is a two-step application process to participate in the Teachers on Sabbatical Program.

Admission to the Teacher on Sabbatical program is offered on a space available basis.  In order to secure a seat, please submit the Teacher on Sabbatical application (See Step 2 below)  prior to obtaining your SOLAS Determination approval from HR Connect.  Please note, there is a possibility of being placed on a wait-list. 

Step 1:

To be awarded a full or half year sabbatical for the Fall or Spring semester, a New York City teacher must submit their sabbatical application to the school principal by the deadline. Deadline dates are approximate - please check with your principal for exact dates.

Step 2:

To enroll in the Teachers on Sabbatical Program at the College of Staten Island, please complete the Teachers on Sabbatical Application for Graduate Non-Matriculated Study. Please review the instructions carefully prior to submitting the application. The instructions are listed on page 1 of the application.

(DO NOT send the application fee prior to receiving your SOLAS approval from the DOE.  We will only require the fee if you have been approved for sabbatical leave and there's a spot available for you in our program.)
