Highly Qualified Teachers
 
99.98% of RISD Teachers are Highly Qualified
The Federal No Child Left Behind Act mandates that all teachers in core academic areas must be ‘highly qualified’ in the core academic subjects they teach by the end of the 2005-2006 school year. It also requires that newly-hired teachers in Title I programs or schools be highly qualified immediately.

“Highly Qualified” is a specific term defined by No Child Left Behind. The law outlines a list of minimum requirements related to content knowledge and teaching skills that a highly qualified teacher would meet.

In reality, the law requires teachers to have bachelor’s degree and full state certification and to demonstrate content knowledge in the subjects they teach. NCLB requires neither separate degrees nor separate certification for every subject taught. In fact, under NCLB, states decide what is necessary for certification and for determining subject matter competency.

In general, under NCLB, a highly qualified teacher must have:
  • A bachelor’s degree.
  • Full state certification, as defined by the state.
  • Demonstrated competency, as defined by the state, in each
    core academic subject he or she taught.
In RISD, the compliance report for NCLB highly qualified teachers shows that the percentage of teachers who are Highly Qualified in all core subjects is 99.98%.
