HOUSSE Transferability

Teachers not new to the profession transferring within a school district

Veteran teachers who completed the Arizona HOUSSE and transfer within the school district may use their previously completed HOUSSE rubric if the following conditions are met:

1.

Veteran teachers must have completed the HOUSSE rubric prior to the beginning of the 2007-08 school year (written documentation must accompany the HOUSSE rubric to meet the HQT requirements), and  

2.

They are assigned to teach in the content area in which they have previously met the HQ requirements.

Teachers not new to the profession transferring between school districts

Veteran teachers who completed the Arizona HOUSSE rubric and transfer between Arizona school districts may use their previously completed HOUSSE rubric if the following conditions are met:

1.

Veteran teachers must have completed the HOUSSE rubric prior to the beginning of the 2007-08 school year (written documentation must accompany the HOUSSE rubric to meet the HQT requirements), and  

2.

They are assigned to teach in the content area is which they have previously met the HQ requirements.

Teachers changing content areas

Effective at the beginning of the 2007-08 school year, ADE requires that all new hires or veteran teachers changing content areas meet the HQT requirements without using the HOUSSE rubric unless they fall under the exceptions noted above.   

HQT teachers misassigned by district and charter schools into areas for which they are not HQ

Beginning with the 2007-08 school year, districts may not assign teachers to a content area in which they are not highly qualified, unless the district prepares a plan and provides the reasonable costs necessary for the teacher to meet the HQ requirement for the position within twelve months of the date of assignment.

HQT interstate reciprocity

ADE has proposed to the State Board of Education that Arizona grant HQT reciprocity to fully certified, out-of-state, teachers who can document they have met the appropriate requirements for HQ status in their home states.  This proposal will be on the October 2006 State Board Agenda as an information item and for action on the agenda of December 2006.
