Highly Qualified Teachers

Alvarado ISD is required to report the qualifications of its teachers to the Texas Education Agency. Teachers are required to be highly qualified if they are the Teacher of Record providing direct instruction to students in any core academic subject area, including English, reading or language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages (languages other than English), civics and government, economics, arts, history, and geography.

Highly qualified teachers must:

  • Hold at least a bachelor’s degree;
  • Be fully certified to teach in Texas; and
  • Demonstrate competency in their core academic subject area
 

The Texas Education Agency publishes reports that districts are required to make available to the public. Those reports are included under "Documents" on this web site.

This notice is to publicly inform the status regarding the employment of teachers who are considered “highly qualified” according to the federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001 for the Alvarado Independent School District. 

In 2002-2003 the Texas Education Agency established a 4-year plan to ensure that all teachers of core subjects were Highly Qualified (HQ) by the end of the 2005-2006 school year and to have all teachers receive Highly Qualified professional development. AISD has met these state goals. All teachers have received HQ professional development. In addition, 100% of teachers of core subjects, fine arts, and foreign languages were considered HQ at the beginning of the 2015-2016 school year, and all AISD campuses were reported to TEA at 100%.  Following is a table of the NCLB highly qualified state percentages and the AISD campus percentages for the 2015-2016 school year. The Highly Qualified report for Region XI is not available at this time.
