  • Special education (IDEA December 2004 options)
  • Alternative programs
  • Certain career technical/vocational education programs

How can a secondary reading intervention

teacher verify subject matter competence?

NCLB subject matter competence for reading teacher:

  • Use HOUSSE for “not new.”

special education teachers teaching multiple subjects may
Special Education Teachers Teaching Multiple Subjects May:
  • Use same options as any other elementary, middle, or secondary teacher who is new or not new.
  • If not new, use a single HOUSSE process for multiple subjects.
  • If new and HQT in math, language arts, or science, and teaching middle/secondary, complete single HOUSSE for other subjects in two years from hire (Title 5 regulations pending).
concerns and issues in idea
Concerns and Issues in IDEA
  • Nearly 25 percent of California special ed teachers do not meet the credential requirement—is credentialing a priority over subject matter compliance?
  • What criteria will California use to determine when a secondary special education teacher in a self-contained setting could meet elementary subject-matter requirements?
more concerns
More Concerns:
  • What does it mean to use a “single” HOUSSE process for multiple subjects?
  • If special education teachers of multiple subjects have two years from hire to be fully compliant, how does the local educational agency/state educational agency ever become 100 percent compliant? How are the data reported?
  • What will be the impact on recruitment and retention of special education teachers?
