5 Title II, Part A: Recruitment, Induction, and Retention of High Quality Teachers and Principals No Child Left Behind Teacher Quality Goals NCLB places a major emphasis on teacher quality as a factor in improving student achievement. (Title I Section 1119) All teachers hired after the first day of the school year and teaching in a program supported by Title I funds should have been “highly qualified.” All other teachers, including special education teachers, teaching core academic subjects must be “highly qualified.” For all teachers not currently considered highly qualified, the school district must report on the HiQ system a remediation method to be implemented during the school year.

6 No Child Left Behind Title II, Part A: Recruitment, Induction, and Retention of High Quality Teachers and Principals Equity Goals Ensure that poor and minority children are not taught by inexperienced, unqualified, or mis-assigned teachers at higher rates than other children. Ensure that children in low performing schools in all geographic regions of the state have access to experienced, qualified and appropriately assigned teachers on an equitable basis.
