• Monthly reporting of teachers who are not highly qualified

    Principals at Title I schools | Deadline: monthly

    The Elementary and Secondary Education Act mandates that all teachers be highly qualified (HQ). Schools that receive funding under Title I are required to notify parents when students are taught by non-HQ teachers or non-HQ long-term substitutes for four or more consecutive weeks.

    Reports of teachers and long-term substitutes flagged as non-HQ are posted each month to the Principal’s Dashboard. Monthly parent notifications must be sent by the following dates (all are Mondays):

    • October 20, 2014
    • November 17
    • December 15
    • January 12, 2015
    • February 9
    • March 9
    • April 13
    • May 4
    • June 1

    Human capital specialists will support schools in monitoring highly qualified status and ensuring affected families are notified on time. Principals can access additional resources regarding highly qualified status and requirements via TSS.

    For questions, please speak with your human capital specialist or contact the Certification department in the Human Capital Office.
