The qualified consulting teacher shall be one who has received a superior or excellent rating on his or her most recent evaluation, has a minimum of five years’ teaching experience and has knowledge relevant to the teaching area/assignment of the teacher under remediation. The participation of the consulting teacher shall be voluntary.
