Requirements for HiQ

subject matter knowledge
to help all of their students achieve at high academic standards, regardless of individual learning styles or needs.

The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that
all teachers of core academic subjects be "highly qualified."
The Title II handbook states who may be considered highly qualified. It is important to know that a teacher who is highly qualified may not necessarily be fully certified. To be fully certified and highly qualified a teacher must meet all of the state's certification requirements AND be assigned appropriately for the field in which he or she is teaching.
Parents Have The Right...
To request information about professional qualifications of your students' teachers;
Whether the teacher has met GA PSC requirements for certification for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status through which GA qualifications or certification criteria have been waived;
The college major and any graduate certification or degree held by the teacher;
Whether the students are provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so their qualifications.
To be notified via standard mail when their child has been taught for 20+ consecutive days by a teacher who is not highly qualified.
to notify parents if a teacher who is not highly qualified is teaching their child a core academic content course.
Parental notification is required if a teacher who is not HiQ teaches their child for four consecutive weeks or more (20+ days).
Parental notification is not required for paraprofessionals who are not HiQ.
