52 QUESTIONS?

53 HQT & NCLB

54 How has NCLB changed teacher qualification requirements? Required all states who receive Title I-A funds to have all core academic teachers highly qualified

55 What is the definition of a Highly Qualified Teacher? Obtain full state licensure Holds a minimum of a bachelor s degree Demonstrate subject matter competency

56 Demonstrating Subject Matter Competency Hold an undergraduate or graduate degree in the core academic subject matter area or Complete coursework equivalent to an undergraduate major in the core academic area (minimum 34 quarter hours) or Passing a rigorous state exam in the core academic subject matter area or Highly Objective Uniform State Standards of Evaluation (HOUSSE)

57 Licenses Considered Full State Certification Basic and Standard Licenses Five Year Licenses Initial and Continuing Licenses Approved NCLB Alternative Route Teaching License

58 Core Academic Subjects English (Language Arts/Reading) Mathematics Science Foreign Language The Arts Geography History Civics and Government Economics

59 What happened to Social Studies? Pre Educators did not take a test for social studies. These individuals must take the Praxis exams in social studies and or meet HOUSSE in each of the four social studies areas (civics & government, economics, history, geography). Post 1989 Most educators would have taken the test for social studies. Some out-of-state prepared educators may have had a transcript review in lieu of exams. If so, they must meet HOUSSE in each of the four social studies areas (civics & government, economics, history, geography).

60 What about alternative education? Must meet requirements of HQT in all core academic subjects they teach

61 What about on-line courses? Teachers employed by a distance learning program in Oregon must hold a valid Oregon teaching license appropriate for the assignment and grade level and must be HQT. Teachers employed by a distance learning program in Oregon or another state must hold a valid teaching license from any state appropriate for the assignment and grade level and must be HQT in the state of origin.

62 NCLB Which paraprofessionals must meet the requirements ALL Paraprofessionals in Title I-A School wide Programs ALL Paraprofessionals paid with Title I-A in Targeted Assistance Schools Programs

63 Exclusions Paraprofessionals working with special education students who do not provide instructional support Paraprofessionals who only serve as translators or who only conduct parental involvement activities

64 Educational Assistants Oregon State Law requires: All other educational assistants must have a high school diploma or equivalent

65 Work under direct supervision of a teacher The teacher prepares the lessons and plans the instructional support activities. The teacher evaluates the achievement of students the paraprofessional is working with. The paraprofessional works in close and frequent proximity with the teacher.

66 Does a teacher need to be HQ under the 10 Hour Rule Yes - A teacher must be HQT for every class they are teaching even if they are teaching off license for 10 hours or less per week.

67 Can a educator on a Conditional Assignment Permit be HQT? Yes, provided they are HQ in the content area they are teaching by coursework or testing while they are on the CAP. If the educator does not qualify to add the new endorsement by the expiration of the CAP they are no longer HQT.

68 Endorsements That Do Not Meet NCLB Requirements Stand-alone endorsements in Special Education and ESOL To Meet NCLB: SPED needs ORELA and/or Core Content Test ESOL needs ORELA and/or Core Content Test

69 NCLB and Charter School Teachers Registered or Licensed 50% of Charter School teachers must be licensed and 50% must be registered with TSPC. To be a registered Charter School Teacher, the educator must have a bachelor s degree and demonstrate subject matter knowledge by coursework or testing to be HQ.

70 What about Special Education Teachers? All special education teachers must be highly qualified in the core academic subjects at the grade levels the students they are teaching are achieving. The IDEIA allows teachers who are only providing consultative services, offering support or otherwise NOT delivering direct instruction to not meet the definition of HQT. [This does not include Life Skills.]

71 What about Special Education Teachers? (cont) Teachers teaching students in grades K-8, may become highly qualified by passing the current multiple-subjects state test: ORELA Multiple Subject Examination. Note: passage of this test will not allow special education teachers to teach multiple subjects in the general education classroom.

72 What about Special Education Teachers? (cont) Basic or Standard Teaching Licenses with an Elementary Endorsement AND a special education endorsement are automatically HQT based on their license alone for special education grades K-8 so long as they are assigned in accordance with their special education endorsement. High school special education teachers must be highly qualified in each core academic subject they are teaching at the grade level at which their highest performing student is achieving. A high school special education teacher may take the multiple subjects examination and be highly qualified to teach all special education students who are performing at or below the 8th grade level of achievement.
