SDE Response ReceivedFebruary 2004
  • Schools operated by the Department of Youth
    Services are not subject to the highly qualified
    teacher requirements

HOWEVER
  • The school district is required to do the
    following
  • Students are to be taught the same academic
    content and be held to the same academic
    standards as their grade level peers in regular
    schools
  • This is due to the fact that the district
    receives
  • NCLB funds under Title I, Part D (N D)
  • NCLB funds under Title II, Part A (Improving
    Teacher Quality State Grants)
  • NCLB funds under Title V (Promoting Informed
    Choice and Innovative Programs)

Therefore
  • Due to the intent of the federal statute and the
    state regulations this district is striving to
    have highly qualified and effective teachers
    teach the students so they can move toward
    proficiency on the states academic and content
    standards.
  • The SDE through the High, Objective, Uniform
    State Standard of Evaluation (HOUSSE) has
    provided schools in Alabama a model, with six
    components, for the teachers to meet the highly
    qualified teacher requirements.
