Highly Qualified Teacher Requirements
The Minnesota State Plan for Federal "Highly Qualified" Teacher Requirements is the official guidance document for teachers and schools.  All department guidance related to "highly qualified" teacher requirements will be based on this plan in order to assure clear communication.  Under the 2001 No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), teachers of core academic subjects must meet certain requirements to demonstrate federal "highly qualified" status.  This plan provides guidance now in effect for all Minnesota public school teachers.
