According to the United States Department of Education Web page, teachers must fulfill the requirements of the federally established highly qualified teacher guidelines or lose their jobs. In 2002-2003 all teachers teaching core subjects in Title I schools hired after the first day of the 2002-2003 school year must be "highly qualified."
All teachers teaching in core academic subjects, including Charter, VocEd and JROTC teachers, must be highly qualified by the end of the 2005-2006 school year.
The Exeter Public Schools Web-site outlines accountability report cards for each site in both the Exeter Union School District and the Exeter Union High School District. The accountability report cards list the number of teachers employed at each site and a breakdown of credentialed and non credentialed teachers.
