Title I (1111)(h) of NCLB requires LEAs ( Local Educational Agencies) to publicly report the percentage of core academic classes* NOT taught by highly qualified teachers, the percentage of teachers teaching on emergency credentials by LEA and school, and the professional qualifications of their teachers. The following is the percentage of core academic classes NOT taught by highly qualified teachers and the percentage of teachers teaching on emergency credentials for ANWSU as a whole and for all schools in our district for the 2011-2012 school year.
** Teachers are certified but may need more coursework to satisfy the Title I (1111) (h) NCLB Requirements
*Core academic subjects are: English language arts (including ESL), math, science, social studies, reading, foreign languages, art, music, and the generalist endorsement areas of elementary education and early childhood education (grades K-3 only). In addition, alternative program and special education primary instruction assignments in math, science, social studies and/or ELA/reading are also considered “core” areas.
