1 Description: The percentage of core academic classes in high-poverty secondary schools taught by teachers that were highly qualified. ; Academic Year: 2012-13; Grade: N/A; Note: The state-reported percentage of core academic classes in high-poverty secondary schools taught by teachers that were highly qualified. The Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), as amended by NCLB, requires states to have a "highly qualified teacher" in every classroom. Under ESEA, a highly qualified teacher is one who (1) has a bachelor's degree, (2) has full state certification or licensure, and (3) has demonstrated subject matter competency in the subject they teach. High-poverty schools are defined under Section 1111(h)(1)(c)(viii) of ESEA as schools in the top poverty quartile in the state. Core academic classes include English, reading/language arts, mathematics, science, foreign languages, civics and government, economics, arts, history, and geography. A dash (-) indicates that the data are not available. ; Source: EDFacts/Consolidated State Performance Report, 2012-13: http://www2.ed.gov/admins/lead/account/consolidated/index.html; Data Uploaded On: 10/09/2014 

CO: The percentage of classes taught by HQ teachers at the secondary level overall is lower than the percentage in either the highest or lowest poverty quartiles because the middle quartiles have a lower percentage of HQ teachers than either the highest or lowest poverty. Also, Colorado considers 6-8 and 7-8 schools secondary, but K-8 schools elementary. However, any school that includes grades 9-12 is considered secondary. Therefore, K-12 schools are considered secondary.
