CAPS provides a way to check certification requirements.

The search returns the following results. The CAPS tool provides a detailed list of the course(s) considered to be HiQ with each certification.

Equity Monitoring a)No student should be taught by inexperienced teachers 2 consecutive years in the same subject b)No student should be taught 2 consecutive years in the same subject by teachers who scores are below the AMO c)Students should have equitable distribution in the classroom. (Miller County school demographics indicate 40% to 60%) d)Class size should be equitable.
Equity Issues If issues are present, please indicate a response in your meeting minutes. EXAMPLE: If a teacher is below AMO they should be targeted for professional development. NOTE: While some inequity may exist that can not be surmounted, the inequity should be identified and acknowledged.
Equity Documentation Principals need to review equity and ensure compliance with Title IIA. Please maintain, and forward minutes of equity planning to the Title II coordinator. Equity planning and action plans must be created to comply with Title II.
