As part of the federal requirement to monitor educators who are not highly qualified under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) collects information on the number of educators who are not highly qualified. This monitoring process requires that annually by November 15, every district submit the Highly Qualified Teacher Plan (PI-9550-IIC) listing educators they employ for the current school year who are “not highly qualified.” Even if every core academic subject educator in the district is “highly qualified,” the district must still submit this form to meet federal compliance.
If your district has not already done so, please submit the PI-9550-IIC by December 4, 2015. Reporting forms and sample parent letters available at: http://tepdl.dpi.wi.gov/programs/-highly-qualified-teachers. Submit reports to Eyvonne Crawford-Gray by FAX, email, or U.S. mail as noted on the form. If you have technical questions about highly qualified provisions and need assistance, please feel free to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
