2.) LEA Equitable Distribution of Efective Educators Report

Background: California’s federally approved and State Board of Education adopted a revised state plan for No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) which requires Local Educational Agencies (LEA) to develop and implement a detailed, coherent set of specific activities to ensure that poor and minority children are not taught by inexperienced, under qualified, or out-of-field teachers at higher rates than other children in the district.

In June 2007, CDE identified 247 California school districts (AUSD is one of the districts) to participate in the Compliance Monitoring, Intervention and Sanctions (CMIS) program. These districts were selected from a wider pool of California school districts that fell short of compliance with full staffing of core academic subjects by NCLB highly qualified teachers.

To meet federal and state requirements, each CMIS school district is required to collect data about the qualifications and experience of its teaching staff and calculate whether any inequities exist, specifically as it relates to the staffing of schools with high rate of poverty, a large minority student population, and schools that have consistently been unable to meet AYP. To end this, the California Department of Education has scheduled workshops to assist districts in meeting this requirement and has funded Personal Management Assistance Teams (PMAT) across the state to assist districts in this work.

This preliminary report provides initial information that will be finalized at a later date in the school year.

Fiscal Implications: None

Superintendent Goal: Goal #2. Goal #4 Recruit and retain high qualified personnel.
