Highly Qualified Teacher Requirements
The No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act requires each local education agency (LEA) to publicly report progress of the LEA and its campuses toward meeting HQ teacher requirements as defined by the state’s measurable highly qualified teacher objectives. This public reporting process is to occur no later than December 16, 2015. The 2015-2016 State Highly Qualified Report is available on the Texas Education Agency (TEA) NCLB program Coordination website.
NCLB also requires that the LEA publicly report the annual progress of the LEA and each campus served by the LEA in meeting the state’s measurable highly qualified teacher objectives. The LEA should compare the data reported by the LEA to these state annual targets to determine the LEA’s progress in these areas. The LEA must report both campus and LEA data in comparison to targets for the 2015-2016 school year. For 2015-2016, 100% of MISD campuses meet NCLB HQ teacher requirements.
