Parent notification regarding non-HQ teachersAll principals and assistant principals | Deadline: September 18
In accordance with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, parents who have a child receiving instruction for four or more weeks from a teacher or long-term substitute who is not highly qualified (non-HQ) must be notified of this fact. The Human Capital Office will send out notifications during the week of September 28. Subsequent “Four-Week Notice” letters will be sent by the school for new hires or assignment changes that result in a child being taught by a non-HQ teacher.To ensure data accuracy, Human Capital will send each principal a list of the school’s non-HQ teachers and will provide the principal with copies of the non-HQ notices that will be sent to individual teachers.
Upon receipt of your non-HQ list, please inform Human Capital of any incorrect information by emailing the correct information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, September 18. Teachers will also be given an opportunity to update the Certification Office regarding any erroneous information. More detailed information on this data validation process will be provided in a September 10 email with your school’s list on non-HQ teachers.
