NCLB High Qualified Teacher Data

Title II, Part A and Title I, Part A place particular emphasis on the need for LEAs to ensure that teachers of a core academic subject meet certain minimum requirements they need to become effective educators. See Appendix A for the statutory requirements for highly qualified teachers. The requirements to be considered “highly qualified” are that teachers hold at least a bachelor’s degree, be fully certified in Texas, and demonstrate competency in the core academic subject area they are teaching. Special education teachers must be appropriately certified as a special education teacher, as required by the December 3, 2004, reauthorization of IDEA.
NCLB Teacher Quality Plans: All States that receive Title I, Part A funds were required by USDE to revise and submit a state plan for USDE approval in order to allow the state to extend the statutory deadline to have all teachers of core academic subjects highly qualified no later than the end of the 2006-2007 school year, excluding any teachers on modified timelines as allowed by USDE for eligible rural school districts or new special education teachers. Each LEA must have a plan describing how it will meet the annual measurable objectives established by TEA for ensuring that all teachers of core academic subjects in the LEA are highly qualified[Section 1119(a)(1) and (3)].
