NCLB High Qualified Teacher Data

Title II, Part A and Title I, Part A place particular emphasis on the need for LEAs to ensure that teachers of a core academic subject meet certain minimum requirements they need to become effective educators. See Appendix A for the statutory requirements for highly qualified teachers. The requirements to be considered “highly qualified” are that teachers hold at least a bachelor’s degree, be fully certified in Texas, and demonstrate competency in the core academic subject area they are teaching. Special education teachers must be appropriately certified as a special education teacher, as required by the December 3, 2004, reauthorization of IDEA.


NCLB Teacher Quality Plans: All States that receive Title I, Part A funds were required by USDE to revise and submit a state plan for USDE approval in order to allow the state to extend the statutory deadline to have all teachers of core academic subjects highly qualified no later than the end of the 2006-2007 school year, excluding any teachers on modified timelines as allowed by USDE for eligible rural school districts or new special education teachers. Each LEA must have a plan describing how it will meet the annual measurable objectives established by TEA for ensuring that all teachers of core academic subjects in the LEA are highly qualified[Section 1119(a)(1) and (3)].

Annual Notification of Nondiscrimination in Career and Technical Education Programs

July 30, 2018

 

TO THE ADMINISTRATOR ADDRESSED:

SUBJECT: Required Annual Notification of Nondiscrimination in Career and Technical Education Programs

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) of the United States Department of Education requires that districts, including charter schools, provide career and technical education (CTE) programs, services, and activities in accordance with the requirements of Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990. The Texas Education Agency (TEA) has regulatory responsibilities for CTE programs in Texas public secondary schools and is required to adopt a civil rights compliance program to identify, remedy, and/or prevent discrimination in the CTE programs operated by districts.

Requirements for compliance are found in the document, Guidelines for Eliminating Discrimination and Denial of Services on the Basis of Race, Color, National Origin, Sex, and Handicap in Vocational Education Programs (Guidelines). A link to the full text can be found at the CTE Methods of Administration (MOA) webpage, which is located on the School Improvement website at: http://tea.texas.gov/si/MOA/.

One important requirement of the Guidelines is that, prior to the beginning of each school year, every district providing CTE programs must advise students, parents, employees, and the general public that all career and technical education opportunities will be offered without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, or disability. Local newspapers, websites, or other media that reach the general public may be utilized to disseminate the required notification. Information regarding this requirement can be found in Section IV – O of the Guidelines under Public Notification.

An English and Spanish version of a sample public notification form, which includes all required elements for complying with this requirement, may be downloaded from the MOA Guidance and Resources webpage at: http://tea.texas.gov/si/MOA. Please note, the Guidelines state that if the district “contains a community of national minority persons with limited English language skills, public notification materials must be disseminated to that community in its language and must state that the district will take steps to assure that the lack of English language skills will not be a barrier to admission and participation in vocational education programs.” Therefore, if your district contains communities who speak languages other than English or Spanish, it also will be necessary for the district to prepare and disseminate the required notice in those languages.

TEA staff will provide support to districts in complying with the requirement to eliminate discrimination in CTE programs. If additional information is needed, please contact Gordon Franzen  by phone at (512) 463-5226 or by e-mail at gordon.franzen@tea.texas.gov.

Sincerely,

C. Lizette Ridgeway
Director, School Improvement
