Nevada Revised Statute 391.100 mirrors the requirements of NCLB regarding all

core teachers meeting the highly qualified teacher requirements by June 30, 2006.Requirement 1: The revised plan must provide a detailed analysis of the coreacademic subject classes in the State that are currently
not 
being taught by highlyqualified teachers. The analysis must, in particular, address schools that are notmaking adequate yearly progress and whether or not these schools have more acuteneeds than do other schools in attracting highly qualified teachers. The analysismust also identify the districts and schools around the State where significantnumbers of teachers do not meet HQT standards, and examine whether or not thereare particular hard-to-staff courses frequently taught by non-highly qualifiedteachers.Y/N/U/NAEvidence (Nevada Self-Analysis)
 
Y1. Does the revised plan include an analysis of classes taught byteachers who are not highly qualified? Is the analysis based onaccurate classroom level data?
 
Y2. Does the analysis focus on the staffing needs of school that arenot making AYP? Do these schools have high percentages of classes taught by teachers who are not highly qualified?
 
Y3. Does the analysis identify particular groups of teachers to whichthe State’s plan must pay particular attention, such as specialeducation teachers, mathematics or science teachers, or multi-subject teachers in rural schools?
 
Y4. Does the analysis identify districts and schools around the Statewhere significant numbers of teachers do not meet HQT standards?Y5. Does the analysis identify particular courses that are often taught by non-highly qualified teachers?
1. ACCURATE CLASSROOM LEVEL DATA
The HQT data is collected at the individual schools which is uploaded to the LEAs personnel officers who verify it against their system, and then it is transmitted to the SEAto be uploaded into the SEA computer system. Validation reports are run against eachdata element supplied by the district against the licensing data in our system. The SEAdoes periodic audits each school year to verify the data against the individual giving theinstruction. As we became more knowledgeable, adjustments/changes were made to thesystem to trap data. We have periodic meetings with all the school district personnelofficers to review data collection - who and how to report. The latest meeting took placeApril 4, 2006 to get specific input from school districts regarding concerns on meetingthe HQT requirements. During the meeting the Department provided a list of all coreacademic teachers who had not met the HQT requirements as of October 1, 2005 andasked that each school district update the list of teachers by April 22, 2006. This revealeda significant increase from 68.1% of teachers meeting the HQT requirements as of theOctober 1, 2005 District “Contracted Educators Report”, which was the HQT submittedin the March 6, 2006 Consolidated State Performance Report, to 80.38%.

AYPSee APPENDIX C (electronic attachment): HQT Data
 This spreadsheet shows percentages of classes in each core subject not being taught byhighly qualified teachers, by district and school, and schools in need of improvement(highlighted in yellow). Note: schools not making AYP for the first year will be added to this list when CRTresults are released in August 2006.Do these schools have high percentages of classes taught by teachers who are not highlyqualified?* “High percentage” was calculated based on 20% or greater of classes not taught byhighly qualified teachers.- In Clark County there are 73 schools that have 20% or greater of classes not taught byhighly qualified teachers that are in need of improvement.
See APPENDIX C-1: Clark NHQT/INOI
There are no other schools in Nevada that meet this criteria.
3. and 5. GROUPS OF NON-HQT ON WHICH THE PLAN MUST FOCUS;IDENTIFICATION OF PARTICULAR COURSES OFTEN TAUGHT BY NON-HQT
A. The analysis identifies special education teachers as the main group of non-highlyqualified teachers on which Nevada’s plan must pay particular attention.1. Elementary school classes taught by certified special education teachers whodid not pass a subject-knowledge test or have not demonstrated subject-matter competency through HOUSSE = 42.8% of these teachers.2. Secondary school classes taught by certified special education teachers whohave not demonstrated subject-matter competency in those subjects = 40.5% of these middle school 7-8 teachers and 40.33% of these secondary 9-12 teachers.B. Analysis by identification of particular courses that have a large percentage of classestaught by non-highly qualified teachers again reveals the need for focus on the followingcourses taught by special education teachers.Subject/Grade LevelPeriods NHQ/Total% NHQ PeriodsSP ED SCIENCE MS 7-8114/19060%SP ED MATH MS 7-8317/53259.58%SP ED ENGLISH MS 7-8612/96663.35%SP ED SOC STUDIES MS 7-8109/17363%SP ED SCIENCE SEC 9-12192.5/32758.86%SP ED MATH SEC 9-12402.5/67060.07%SP ED ENGLISH SEC 9-12495.5/83659.27%SP ED SOC STUDIES SEC 9-12241.5/37165.09%
