Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA)

With the passage of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), some provisions are being phased in or phased out, with full implementation set for 2017-18. 

One provision that is no longer required for the 2016-17 school year is the Highly Qualified requirements for teachers.  Kentucky defines a qualified teacher as one how holds the appropriate certification for the position unless the superintendent of the employing school district has documented evidence that the teacher is unsuitable for appointment. 

Effective July 1, 2016, teachers must meet state licensure requirements for content and student population areas.
