Welcome to Highly Qualified Professionals

NCLB places a strong emphasis on ensuring that teachers and classroom aides are highly qualified to provide instruction to students. FUSD boasts a highly qualified staff across every grade level and content area.  Teachers are certified by the Department of Education and more than 97% meet the requirements for “highly qualified.”  Those few who have not attained the highly qualified label are taking graduate-level classes or competency exams to meet the requirements. NCLB allows parents to request information on specific qualifications for their children’s teachers, including:

  • certification/state licensure information, and

  • undergraduate/graduate degrees.
