Banking Staffing FAQs: FTTE conversion

What is an FTTE?

FTTE means Full Time Teacher Equivalent. A board can have several part-time teachers making up one FTTE. For example, two part-time teachers, each working at 0.5 of a full-time teacher, together make 1.0 FTTE. One full-time permanent teacher will generate 26 FTTE usage, inclusive of paid vacations, in the staffing year (pay period [yyyy]23 to pay period [yyyy+1]22).
