No Child Left Behind Highly Qualified Teacher Report

Highly Qualified Teachers

Section 1119 of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) focuses on improving teacher quality at the local level. To achieve this goal, the act requires all teachers teaching core subject academic areas to meet specific competency and educational requirements. Teachers who meet these requirements are considered “Highly Qualified.” Each year the district reports to the board the status of meeting Section 1119. See attachment for most current report.
