    If a posting is seeking a teacher for the 2019/2020 school year, does that typically mean that it’s a one-year position?

    Not necessarily.

    It’s just the wording of the posting, most likely. It’s definitely a question to ask, though.

    I have never seen a posting that would say more than one year. every contract is for one year, that's why the posting would say 2019/20. These positions would then be extended before the next year.

    Based on what I've seen, if a position is limited to only 1 year, they mention that it's a temporary position. you can of course ask.

    I agree with the others. I have seen postings for "tenure track" positions but that doesn't mean a posting stating only one school year is necessarily a temporary position.

    Here in Colorado, they clearly state "one year only" on the temporary positions.

    I forgot about that... now I recall seeing that once, too.

    We usually post 19-20 on jobs when they're posted during the 18-19 school year to differentiate between jobs that are for the current year and those that are for the upcoming year.
