Main Page Image

 

The purpose of this part is to increase student academic achievement through strategies such as improving teacher and principal quality and increasing the number of highly qualified teachers in the classrooms.

Preparing and Training

As funds are available, professional development activities are supported in cooperation with state and local funding to positively impact the areas identified through the comprehensive needs assessment.

Recruiting

The Chilton County School District actively recruits highly qualified personnel.  All potential applicants are carefully screened for Highly Qualified requirements.

Current personnel are assigned to teaching positions based on highly qualified status as identified by state and federal requirements. Assistance is provided for core subject area personnel not meeting highly qualified status to become highly qualified by the dates mandated by NCLB.

Highly Qualified

Chilton County Title I Schools' goal for teachers is 100%. Highly qualified teacher shortages exist in Alabama in the areas of math, science and foreign language. Federal funds will be made available to existing teachers who are considered not highly qualified to become highly qualified in their core academic subjects. Personnel and schedule adjustments will be made where appropriate to continue to strive to meet the 100% goal. All new personnel hired will meet the qualifications stated in Section 1119, if possible. All efforts will be made to employ Highly Qualified personnel through recruiting, contacting other school systems and universities, reviewing applications on file, etc.

100% of Title I schools' teachers and paraprofessionals have met the highly qualified requirements.

Class Size Reduction

Teacher units are allocated to schools based on greatest need after all State Foundation units have been alallocated to targeted schools.
