Teacher Certification

“Chapter 231”

To review the teacher certification requirements for specific courses, please see the Assignment of Public School Personnel, Part 1 found in 19 TAC §231.1(e).

In addition to state certification requirements, any CTE teacher who is the teacher of record and provides direct instruction in a CTE course that satisfies a core academic graduation requirement must meet the NCLB highly qualified teacher requirements.  Just because a teacher is qualified to teach a course for credit in the state of Texas does not automatically mean they are highly qualified according to federal standards.  The district must determine HQ status for each teacher.

Teachers assigned to teach the following courses must meet NCLB highly qualified requirements:
  • Business English
  • Engineering Design and Problem Solving
  • Principles and Elements of Floral Design
  • Food Science
  • Professional Communications
  • Forensic Science
  • Statistics and Risk Management
  • Medical Microbiology
  • Advanced Quantitative Reasoning
  • Pathophysiology
  • Advanced Animal Science 
  • Principles of Technology
  • Advanced Biotechnology
  • Scientific Research and Design
  • Advanced Plant and Soil Science
  • Mathematical Application in Ag, Food and Natural Resources
  • Anatomy and Physiology
