Highly Qualified Teachers

ADVISORY

In the district-level results of the Highly Qualified Teacher information released Wednesday by the Department of Education, data was missing from some of the districts’ special education columns. This was due to a merging problem with the many special education job codes. The problem has been fixed. In some of the other results, there are minor changes to data resulting from the addition of the special education records to the calculations. All have been revised accordingly.
