Using Maryland's HOUSSE (High, Objective, Uniform State Standard of Evaluation). Achieving "Highly Qualified" Status Under No Child Left Behind (NCLB). A Guide for Maryland Teachers.
Maryland State Department of Education
To assist teachers in achieving "highly qualified" status, the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) has created a single document that will give teachers the information they need to interpret the requirements of HOUSSE; assess their credentials, course work, experience, and professional activities; complete the HOUSSE rubric to achieve "highly qualified" status; and submit their completed rubrics to human resources officials in local school systems. Teachers are encouraged to review this document and determine their status, using HOUSSE and submitting a Competency Rubric if appropriate. For teachers who achieve "highly qualified" status as a result of holding a Maryland Advanced Professional Certificate (APC) in the core academic subjects they are teaching, no further action is necessary. Individual questions should be addressed to human resources/personnel staff in teachers' individual school systems.
