During this period, teachers on Emergency Certificates are contacted by ADE. Those teachers who are not awaiting previously earned certificates or other documentation allowing them to rapidly move to an initial teaching license are provided with information about and counseled to enter the internship program. In this program, the intern candidate is enrolled in a State Board approved teacher preparation program or State Board approved alternative path to certification. They are entitled to enter into a teaching contract while completing the requirements for an Arizona provisional teaching certificate.
The revised plan must provide information on HQT status in each LEA and the steps the SEA will take to ensure that each LEA has plans in place to assist teachers who are not highly qualified to attain HQT status as quickly as possible.
2a) Does the plan identify LEAs that have not met annual measurable objectives for HQT?
The Annual Measurable Objective for all Arizona LEAs was 100% HQT by the end of the 2005-06 school year. In Arizona both district and charter schools are defined as LEAs. Data collected in Phase I indicates the following LEAs did not meet the 100% AMO for HQT. It is anticipated that additional LEAs will be included following the Phase III data collection.
