Highly Qualified: Secondary Certificate Grade Level Change

Effective December 8, 2014, the grade range of the Secondary teaching certificate has been changed from grades 7-12 to grades 6-12. The rule change benefits districts who hire middle school teachers because it increases the pool of qualified candidates certified to teach in a single subject, 6th-8th grade classrooms.
