Randall Kirk, WVEIS Programmer Extraordinaire (Shawn L. Hawkins, Teacher Quality Coordinator June 23, 2011)
Required by No Child Left Behind Data collected in spring semester Results issued in late spring/early summer Basics- By the end of the school year, all teachers delivering instruction in the core academic subject areas must meet the NCLB definition of highly qualified teacher. Teachers must hold a bachelor’s degree or higher; meet certification requirements and; demonstrate subject matter competency. (WVBE Policy 5202)
Subject Matter Competency Passing the state competency test for which a state minimum score was established by the WVBE in the content area(s); OR Having an academic major (Form 26 for special educators) or advanced credential(s) in the subject taught as defined in § and § , respectively; OR HOUSSE (only an option after school year for special education teachers). ***May or may not continue to be available.
A teacher identified as highly qualified for a subject area in a previous year will have a record that follows them. Will NOT follow them if they change subject areas Elem. teachers… continue to schedule the same If scheduled for English, Reading & Math or Science, teacher will be rolled up into self-contained (unless various exceptionalities and grades.) A teacher’s employee number must align to their social security number, or they will show as not certified (STU.240 WVEIS File-at school level).
HOUSSE Option Scenario-- If a special education teacher has a classroom where he/she teaches more than one core subject, AND is certified in the exceptionalities he/she is teaching, THEN the teacher may demonstrate subject matter competency in all other core subjects being taught using HOUSSE, IF he/she demonstrates or has demonstrated subject matter competency in science, English, or mathematics by passing the PRAXIS II, or by having an academic major or advanced credential. **This must be done manually at WVDE (Use Request Review). See WVBE Policy 5202
If you have to place a sub in a classroom: Continuously keep the position posted in hopes of finding a certified, highly qualified teacher Place a long-term sub who holds the content area endorsement If contents do not match, write a waiver request to Dr. Marple if in the classroom for more than 30 days If you MUST place a short-term sub try to match content with endorsement If no match is possible, write a waiver immediately
If you have a permit or authorization holding teacher in a classroom: Will NOT be highly qualified (even if…Praxis II and 21 hours…Must be fully certified Exception: Title I Reading Teachers who are fully certified in Elementary K-6 or Multi-Subjects K-8 who are on permit or authorization for Reading/Reading Specialist AND have either the Praxis II 0011 for elementary or have been HOUSSEd for self-contained.
Correct Collaborative WVEIS code 8011, 8013, 8015 & 8017 (use for special education) Title I teachers must use Title I course code 4809 or 3049 Correct 6 th digit exceptionality code Must click on the RED NEEDS ASSESSMENT for the not highly qualified message to not show Will reflect Collaborative DO NOT place them on a schedule as a teacher of record for a class (Ex T), if actually collaborative.

HQT designation will be entered by content area instead of by the entire school list of NCLB core content areas teachers. This will allow you to divide the work and complete one content area before moving on to another. An entire school list will load during the Class Count Phase. Recommended that you print this as a record for HQT being completed in case you need it at the end of the year for school check-out.
Instructions to access the data collection web site: Go to Select WVEIS Web Tab. On the left-hand side, select County, Highly Qualified. Log In with your WVEIS log in. Select HQ Check and then Select a School (County Administrators) You will select the specific school in the county you wish to review. Principals will only be able to view the school to which they are assigned. Select HQ 2011(on left-hand side). If you cannot make a selection due to an error or you are not certain how the teacher should be identified,, use Request for Review or on left-hand side select the content again, this will return you to the previous screen. DO NOT use the BACK arrow on the internet toolbar.
Request a Review Only after you have tried to figure out why a teacher is not HQT Review Credentials Button Is course coded correctly Is the endorsement eligible to teach the course Is the teacher fully certified (19, 21, 22 or 65 certificates) **Special exception for Reading Specialist Praxis II for specific content Eligibility for Academic Major Eligibility for HOUSSE

Once we have had a period of approximately 1 month for HQ collection (today through March 9 th ), we ask for Class Update Values (March 16 th through April 8 th ). Teachers should only be identified for number of periods in one day. If scheduled with multiple exceptionalities in one class period, a proportional value should be submitted.
Scheduled for: B (6 students) 7010-J (1 student) 7010-R (3 students) **But all three are really reflecting one period in the teacher’s day.** Take a proportion. These three should equal 1 class 7010-B = J = R =.30 Once class values completed, NO teacher should have greater # of classes than what they teach in one day (periods).
Schedules/Course/Teacher Information (HQT) Ongoing, schedules pulled every 4pm Superintendent or Designee Highly Qualified Teachers (final collection) January 23 rd -March 9 th School Principal Highly Qualified Teachers (finalize classes) March 19 th -April 13 th School Principal
