                                   INTRODUCTION


On January 8, 2002, President George W. Bush signed into law the No Child Left Behind
(NCLB) Act of 2001. This Act, which redefines the federal role in K-12 education, is the
most sweeping reform of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) since it
was enacted in 1965. The law is based on four basic principles:

   1.   stronger accountability for results;
   2.   increased flexibility and local control;
   3.   expanded options for parents; and
   4.   emphasis on teaching methods that have been proven to work.

Overall, the NCLB Act is striving to close the achievement gap between disadvantaged
and minority students and their peers.

The NCLB Act requires each State to demonstrate that challenging student academic
achievement standards will be used by the State, its Local Education Agencies (LEA's),
and its schools. Such standards must apply to all schools and children in the State.
Further, they must align with the State's academic content standards, describe two levels
of high achievement that determine how well children are mastering the materials in the
State academic content standards, and describe a third level of achievement to provide
complete information about the progress of the lower-achieving children toward
mastering the proficient and advanced levels of achievement. Other major changes that
the law delineates include the following:

   •    a strong emphasis on adequate yearly progress for all public school students;
   •    a strong emphasis on teacher certification and paraprofessional qualifications;
   •    State and LEA report cards to detect the percentage of schools that require school
        improvement;
   •    a greater level of authority for local schools to design their own programs; and
   •    an emphasis on school safety and choice.

When schools do not meet State targets for improving the achievement of all students,
parents need to have options, including the option to send their child to another school.
Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), as
amended by the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB), responds to that need by
giving parents of students enrolled in Title I schools that have been identified for school
improvement, corrective action, restructuring (because they have not met State
achievement targets) the opportunity to transfer their children to a public school that has
not been so identified. The provisions of the ESEA that set forth the requirements for
public school choice, along with provisions that focus new attention and resources on
turning around low-performing schools, are critical mechanisms for achieving the vision
embodied in NCLB: a high-quality education for all students.

Parents of students from low-income families enrolled in Title I schools in the second
year of school improvement, in corrective action, or in restructuring also have the
opportunity to obtain supplemental educational services (SES) for their children. SES are
free tutoring and other academic enrichment services that are in addition to instruction
provided during the school day and are of high quality, research-based, and specifically
designed to increase the academic achievement of eligible students. When the public

                                                                                         3
school choice and SES options are both available, parents of eligible students have the
choice of which option they would prefer for their child.

In March 2008, former U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings announced a
differentiated accountability pilot, as part of NCLB, to allow states to distinguish between
those schools in improvement that need substantial help and those close to meeting
achievement goals. The state Department of Education’s Differentiated Accountability
Model provides schools with multiple opportunities to engage in a wide range of
strategies with varying intensity and types of interventions to raise student achievement.
In accordance with the Florida’s Differentiated Accountability Model, students enrolled
in or assigned to Title I schools that have not made AYP for two (2) or more consecutive
years (SINI Level 1) are eligible to receive Supplemental Educational Services (SES) as
their first year option. All Title I schools that have been identified as Schools in Need of
Improvement (SINI) for failing to make AYP for three or more consecutive years, must
offer all enrolled students the opportunity to transfer to another public school in the
district through the Public School Choice (PSC) program. These schools are referred to as
SINI 2+ schools.

What is the purpose of the public school choice provisions of NCLB?

Public school choice is a critical component of NCLB because it offers a student enrolled
in a Title I school that is identified for school improvement, corrective action, or
restructuring an opportunity to attend a public school that has not been so identified. The
process of turning around a low-performing school is difficult and typically takes time,
and during that time the school’s students are at risk of falling further behind if they do
not have additional options. Together with the school improvement activities undertaken
under Title I, public school choice can provide all students in low-performing Title I
schools – including students with disabilities and limited English proficient students – the
opportunity to obtain a high-quality education. In addition, expanded parental choice
gives schools a greater incentive to undertake reforms and make the changes that are
needed to improve student learning and reach academic achievement goals.

For which students must an LEA offer public school choice?

An LEA must offer all students enrolled in Title I schools (that is, schools that operate
programs funded under Title I, Part A of the ESEA) that have been identified as Schools
in Need of Improvement (SINI) for failing to make AYP for three or more consecutive
years the opportunity to transfer to another public school in the LEA that is not so
identified.

Students have the inherent right to be afforded equal access to quality educational
experiences, regardless of socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds. Therefore, the
District has developed this implementation plan to fulfill the requirements of the NCLB
Act and clarify procedural aspects relative to public school choice. The No Child Left
Behind Public School Choice Implementation Plan for Miami-Dade County Public
Schools (M-DCPS) addresses the following aspects:

   1. eligibility criteria;
   2. public school options;
   3. parental awareness;
   4. educational programs; and
   5. transportation

                                                                                          4
Tasks/assignments required to carry out the district’s No Child Left Behind Public School
Choice Implementation Plan are delineated in the NCLB Timeline (Appendix A).

In order to minimize disruption to each student’s educational program, the NCLB Public
School Choice Transfer Application Period will be implemented immediately following
the District’s Magnet/Choice Application Period. This Early Notification application
period will be open April 4, 2011 through April 29, 2011, for those schools that are
identified eligible to participate in the program prior to the release of AYP data.

Currently, there are 157 Title I Miami-Dade County Public Schools that shall remain
designated as “Schools in Need of Improvement” (SINI Level 2+) for the 2011-2012
school year. Although every effort is underway to eliminate or mitigate the number of
schools designated as SINI, it is nonetheless possible that more of the District’s schools
will again receive the same designation, thereby resulting in continued and expanded
eligibility for selected students.

What are the responsibilities of a school that receives transfer students under the
public school choice provisions?

A school that receives transfer students under the public school choice provisions must
ensure that these students are enrolled in classes and other activities in the school in the
same manner as all other students in the school. For instance, transfer students entering a
school must have the same opportunities as all other students enrolled in the school to
select courses, take part in special programs (such as activities for gifted and talented
students) and participate in extracurricular activities.


I. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND TRANSFERS

As part of the No Child Left Behind Public School Choice Implementation Plan,
individual transportation zones have been established for each Title I school identified
“In Need of Improvement” (SINI). In the development of these zones, the following
factors were taken into consideration:

   1. Proximity of schools that have not been designated as “in need of improvement”
      and that are eligible as receiving schools;
   2. Length of student transportation times;
   3. Sufficient numbers of alternate public school choices with available space;
   4. Feeder pattern integrity; and
   5. Diverse socioeconomics.

For purposes of the No Child Left Behind Public School Choice Implementation Plan,
schools designated as SINI Level 2+ will participate in the transfer process. That is,
students from selected Title I schools that are designated “In Need of Improvement” for
three or more years will be provided the opportunity to transfer to higher performing
eligible public schools that have space available. Students who transfer to a school within
their home school’s individual transportation zone that is more than two miles from their
place of residency will be provided with free transportation, if sufficient funds are
available. Should the demand for services exceeds the available funding, priority must be
given to lowest achieving students from low income families.

                                                                                          5
       The following table reflects the senior high school feeder patterns included in each
       Region Center:

       A. Parents/guardians of eligible public school students attending a Title I school that has
          been designated SINI Level 1 may exercise the following choice option:

            -   Receive free tutoring from a State-approved Supplemental Educational Services
                Provider before or after school, on weekends, during intersession
                (winter/spring/summer breaks). To qualify for this option, students must be
                eligible for free or reduced priced meals. If the demand for services exceeds the
                available funding, priority must be given to the lowest achieving students from
                low income families.

       B. Parents/guardians of eligible public school students attending a Title I school that has
          been designated SINI Level 2 or higher (failed to meet AYP for three or more
          consecutive years), may exercise one of the following choice options:

            1- Enroll in and be transported to an eligible public school that has not been
               designated as “In Need of Improvement” within their home school’s individual
               transportation zone in Miami-Dade County and has available space; or
            2- Remain at the school where the student is currently enrolled and receive free
               tutoring from a State-approved Supplemental Educational Services Provider
               before or after school, on weekends, during intersession (winter/spring/summer
               breaks). To qualify for this option, students must be eligible for free or
               reduced priced meals. If the demand for services exceeds the available funding,
               priority must be given to the lowest achieving students from low income families.

       C. The following are student eligibility criteria for No Child Left Behind Public School
          Choice Transfer with Transportation participation:

            1- The student is attending or is assigned to attend the Title I school during the
               school year in which the school is identified “In Need of Improvement” for the
               third consecutive year or greater (SINI Level 2+).
            2- The student is entering kindergarten and has been notified that he/she has been
               assigned to a school “In Need of Improvement” (SINI Level 2+ for the next
               school year.
            3- The student is entering middle school or senior high school and has been notified
               that he/she has been assigned to a school “In Need of Improvement” SINI Level
               2+ for the next school year.

                                                                                                             6
   4- Students new to M-DCPS, including military dependents who are assigned to a
      Title I school identified “In Need of Improvement” SINI Level 2+.

For the purposes of continuity of educational choice, the No Child Left Behind transfer
shall remain in force until the student:

   a) returns to his/her residence public school; or
   b) completes the highest attainable grade at the public school of choice:

        1- grade 5 or 6 in an elementary school;
        2- grade 8 in a k-8 center or middle school;
        3- grade 12 in a senior high school

A NCLB transfer is a non-revocable transfer. The transfer shall remain in force until the
student completes the highest attainable grade at the public school of choice or as
delineated in Section VI.D, Alternative Educational Placement.

   1. Parents/guardians complete the NCLB Public School Choice Transfer Application
      form prioritizing two public school selections from the list of receiving schools
      provided. Parents/guardians must submit the application form at the school site,
      Regional Center, by U.S. Mail to the NCLB Parental Choice Options office or via
      fax to 305-995-2802, no later than the established enrollment period deadline.

   3. Staff receiving the NCLB Public School Choice Transfer Application form must:

        • Be available during regular school office hours to assist parents during the
          NCLB Transfer Application Enrollment Period;
        • Review each application to ensure that the parent/guardian has completed all
          the required information;
                                                                                        9
        • Provide the needed assistance and make sure that the application is completed
          and signed by the parent/guardian;
        • Verify that the parent/guardian has indicated their first and second choice
          school on the application;
        • Determine if the student is eligible for special education services. If the
          student is eligible to receive services, verify that the schools requested can
          deliver services required by the student’s Individual Educational Plan (IEP);
        • Sign and date-stamp the original application form;
        • Make a copy of the application for school records;
        • Make a copy of the application for the parent/guardian;
        • Create a log entry to record receipt of every application;
        • Inform the parent/guardian at the time they apply for the NCLB Public School
          Choice Transfer during the Early Notification Transfer period (March-April)
          that on the last two weeks of the current school year, they may obtain the new
          NCLB school assignment from their child’s residence school during school
          office hours;
        • Inform the parent/guardian at the time they apply for the NCLB Public School
          Choice Transfer during the Post AYP transfer period (June-July) that they will
          be notified by Attendance Services of the new NCLB school assignment;
        • Inform parents/guardians that every attempt will be made to honor their
          choices; however, students may be assigned to an alternate school depending
          on seats available at the requested school and/or special students’ needs; and
        • Mail original applications on a daily basis via school mail to NCLB Parental
          Choice Options, SBAB Annex, Suite 336, Work Location # 9102.

   4. Students new to the District must first register at their residence school prior to
      applying for a NCLB transfer. If applying after the NCLB application deadline,
      applications may be obtained at the NCLB Parental Choice Options office, 1500
      Biscayne Blvd., Suite 336, Miami, Florida 33132. Should parents have any
      questions regarding the NCLB application process, they may contact the NCLB

   5. Students are notified by the District of their school placement prior to the opening
      of school.
   6. The students will have a two week period in which to report following the
      opening of the new school year. If the student fails to report to the new school
      within the specified time period, he/she will forfeit the NCLB Choice transfer.

IV. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - APPEAL PROCESS

After the prioritized selection process is completed for students whose choice selection
was to transfer to another public school, parents/guardians will be notified of their child’s
school assignment and of their right to appeal the assignment, if not satisfied.

If a parent/guardian wishes to appeal their No Child Left Behind (NCLB) assignment,
they must contact Attendance Services prior to the end of the first month of classes
during office hours at 305-883-5323 to indicate their intent to appeal. The staff at
Attendance Services shall attempt to resolve the appeal, and may offer alternate
assignments.




                                                                                          10
The Attendance Services staff will proceed as follows:

   1. If parent/guardian accepts an alternate assignment, Attendance Services staff shall
      input the transfer approval and input student information into ISIS. Parent will
      then be advised of approval.
   2. If parent/guardian does not accept the new assignment, Attendance Services staff
      shall deny the transfer as requested and advise the parent of the process to appeal
      at the next level to the Deputy Superintendent, School/District Operations or
      designee.

Students who move into or who are assigned to a Title I school designated “in need of
improvement” after the application deadline for No Child Left Behind transfers and
whose parents are interested in obtaining such a transfer, will be considered on a case-by-
case basis.

Every effort will be made to accommodate eligible siblings in the same school.

V. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATIONAL SERVICES
   (SES)

An additional choice option is available to students attending Title I schools that are
designated “in need of improvement” for one or more years. Students attending schools
that have been designated SINI Level 1 or higher and are eligible to receive free or
reduced priced meals may be given the option of receiving State Approved Supplemental
Educational Services (SES).

State Approved Supplemental Educational Services (SES) are additional academic
instructional services designed to increase the academic achievement of eligible students
in low-performing schools who wish to remain at their schools. These services may
include academic assistance such as tutoring, remediation, and other educational
interventions, provided that such approaches are consistent with the content and
instruction used by the District and are aligned with the State’s academic content
standards. Supplemental Educational Services must be provided outside of the regular
school day. To be eligible to receive SES, a student must also be eligible to receive free
or reduced price meals.

The following steps outline the application process:

   •   An informational letter will be sent to parents of students at potentially
       eligible schools prior to the end of the school year.
   •   The District will mail-out SES packets upon the release of AYP data
       containing an informational letter, provider directory, questions to ask
       providers, enrollment forms, and a chart containing academic data
       regarding their child’s school in comparison to other schools in the District.
   •   The enrollment period for SES will be widely announced during the fall.
       Subsequent enrollment periods will be announced, as necessary, to meet
       the fundable number of students through the available Choice and SES set-
       aside funds.
   •   Parents may go to the student’s Title I home school or one of the
       Supplemental Educational Services fairs to complete and submit an
       application for SES and select three possible Providers. For more

                                                                                        11
       information regarding the SES application process, parents may contact
       NCLB Parental Choice Options at 305-995-7291 or 305-995-4549.

VI. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - SPECIAL PROGRAMS

   A. SPECIAL EDUCATION

   Programs for students with disabilities are offered at all public schools. A student
   with a disability may transfer to another eligible public school on the District's choice
   list as long as the services delineated on the Individual Educational Plan (IEP) can be
   provided at the receiving school. If the school requested by the parent cannot deliver
   the services on the IEP, school staff should contact the Regional Center Special
   Education Instructional Supervisor for information on appropriate school options that
   can offer comparable services/programs for the student in compliance with his/her
   IEP.

   B. GIFTED EDUCATIONAL PLACEMENT

   If a child is identified as a gifted student, the established No Child Left Behind
   transfer process for regular education students will be followed through the
   identification of the approved receiving school. The receiving school should schedule
   a Gifted Educational Plan meeting to review and/or revise the student’s Educational
   Plan and ensure appropriate placement and services.

   C. BILINGUAL EDUCATION AND WORLD LANGUAGES

   Bilingual Education and World Languages programs are offered in all public schools.
   Once schools have accurate enrollment information, teacher allocations will be
   adjusted as needed.

   D. ALTERNATIVE EDUCATION PLACEMENT

   If a student has been assigned administratively to an alternative school site, that
   student is not eligible for a No Child Left Behind program transfer. That includes the
   following placement types (as they appear in the student case management system):
   administrative assignment, administrative assignment in lieu of expulsion, work back
   in lieu of expulsion, expul-max by law, sixteen years of age and over, and expul-max
   by law under sixteen years of age.

   If a student receives a NCLB transfer and is subsequently assigned administratively to
   an alternative school site, the NCLB transfer is forfeited and he/she must return to
   his/her residence school at the conclusion of the assignment. That includes all the
   aforementioned placement types. Once the student completes the alternative school
   assignment and returns to the residence school, he/she may apply for a NCLB transfer
   during the next enrollment period, if the school is an eligible NCLB sending school.

VII. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - TITLE I SCHOOLS

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires school districts to allow students in Title I
schools that are designated as “in need of improvement” for three or more years to
transfer to a higher performing public school that has not been designated a school in
need of improvement and has space available. Additionally, if Title I schools continue to

                                                                                         12
fail to meet AYP objectives and are designated as “in need of improvement” for two (2)
or more years, the school district is required to use Title I funds to provide Supplemental
Educational Services as another option to the students enrolled at those schools (see
Appendix G).

A. The District will implement strategies such as the following for Title I schools
   identified as not meeting AYP objectives:

   1. Form an Assistance Team for each school, to include district, school, community,
      state, and regional personnel;
   2. Develop a District Assistance Plan for identified schools;
   3. Provide needed resources for the identified schools;
   4. Assist the school in using data to determine needed revisions to its School
      Improvement Plan; and
   5. Monitor progress of the identified schools continuously throughout the school
      year.

B. If a school is identified for improvement, not meeting AYP objectives for two or
   more consecutive years, the District will implement the following interventions,
   according to the year of “in need of improvement” designation:

   1. Make parents aware of their opportunity for public school choice transfer or
      Supplemental Educational Services (SES);
   2. Provide a choice to parents of at least two schools not identified for improvement;
   3. Provide transportation if choice is within the geographic zone and over two miles
      from the student’s residence;
   4. Make SES available to eligible students and provide parents with a list of State
      Approved Providers for Supplemental Educational Services; and
   5. Allocate the required Title I funds for public school choice transfer or
      Supplemental Educational Services.

VIII. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND – CHARTER SCHOOLS

Parents of eligible charter school students may exercise one of the following options
under No Child Left Behind by the established deadline:

   1. Retain their child at their current school; or
   2. Transfer their child to the boundary public school; or
   3. If the child’s boundary public school has been designated SINI Level 2 or higher,
      transfer to a public school that has not been designated as “in need of
      improvement” and has available space within the assigned geographic zone of the
      residence school; or
   4. Apply to attend another charter school that has available seats in accordance with
      all entry requirements stipulated in the respective charter school’s contract;
   5. Apply to attend a choice school (e.g. magnet, commuter school, etc.) that has
      available seats in accordance with all entry requirements for the respective choice
      school; or

                                                                                        13
IX. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - STUDENT TRANSPORTATION SERVICES

A. The District will provide transportation services to eligible No Child Left Behind
   transfer participants. In order to receive transportation, students must:

   1. Select a public school within their home school’s individual transportation zones;
      and
   2. Reside more than two miles from their selected school. Such distances are
      measured pursuant to State Board of Education Rule 6A- 3.001, Basic Principles
      for Transportation of Students. (see Appendix H).

B. The following procedures will be in effect for eligible No Child Left Behind transfer
   participants:

   1. Transfer code “D” will be assigned when students select a public school outside
      of their home school’s individual transportation zone. These students will not
      receive transportation;
   2. Transfer code “C” will be assigned when students select a public school within
      their home school’s individual transportation zone. These students will receive
      transportation if the selected school is two miles or more from their residence;
   3. Transfer code “F” will be assigned if they have selected to apply and are admitted
      to a public magnet school. These students will receive transportation to the
      magnet school if eligible for NCLB transportation.
   4. Transportation schedule and information will be sent to parents on pre-school
      year post cards, along with other pertinent school data.

C. Parents of a student who are geographically isolated, have special needs, or who may
   be the only student attending a public school that has been designated as “in need of
   improvement” SINI Level 2+, may be offered parental reimbursement in lieu of
   school bus service. Procedures for such transportation arrangements will include:

   1. Identification of students using reports from the Transportation Routing System;
   2. Communication with parents to determine interest in the parental reimbursement
      plan;
   3. Compensation for parents at a rate of $0.585 per mile for 180 school days; and
   4. Remuneration twice a year as stipulated by contractual agreement between the
      Department of Transportation and parents.


X. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - PERSONNEL/BUDGET ADJUSTMENTS

A. Initial staff allocations to schools are based on estimated Full-Time Equivalents
   (FTE) and are calculated in the Computer Assisted School Allocation System
   (CASAS). Initial FTE estimates are prepared by the Office of Budget Management
   and subsequently revised by Regional Centers for grade level changes, Attendance
   Boundary Committee recommendations, opening of new schools, etc. The Regional
   Center may shift FTE from school to school as additional information becomes
   available about a particular school’s membership, but may not exceed the designated
   Regional Center FTE caps.
B. The following is a list of activities that will assist in providing schools with a CASAS
   that reflects the best estimate of FTE membership for staffing prior to the opening of
   the regular school term:
                                                                                        14

C. As soon as FTE has been redistributed as a result of No Child Left Behind transfers,
   staff from Human Resources will work with Regional Center Staff to reassign
   personnel surplused as a result of these transfers. Surplus procedures described in
   Article XII, Section 6 of the UTD contract will be implemented (see Appendix I).
   Final CASAS will be based on actual FTE membership as of September, 2011. Pre-
   Final Budget/Personnel Staffing Conferences will be conducted September - October,
   2011.

XI. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - ASSESSMENT AND TESTING

A. No Child Left Behind Transfer Students:

   The public school that the student chooses to attend will be responsible for
   administering state assessments to that student. Results will be forwarded to the
   school for distribution to the parents. The student’s test scores will be used in the
   computation of that school’s grade category designation.

B. Assessment and Data Analysis’ responsibilities will include:

   1. The development of a method to monitor and maintain a list of all schools and
      their yearly progressive status; and
   2. The review of Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) results annually
      to identify schools that have been designated “in need of improvement.”

XII. NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND - TEXTBOOKS

     In order to comply with statutory requirements that every child be provided with a
     copy of the needed instructional materials in the core areas of Language Arts,
     Reading, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, it is the responsibility of the
     transferring school to send the instructional materials to the school receiving the
     student(s). Instructions are provided in the Instructional Materials Transfer
     Notification (see Appendix J).

6A-3.001 Basic Principles for Transportation of Students.

(1) Where it is practicable to provide improved transportation service and school facilities
for students from an area in adjoining districts, district lines shall not interfere with the
designation of a school attendance area composed of areas of two (2) or more districts. It
shall be the duty of school boards and superintendents of the districts involved to develop
a plan which will assure the children of the area adequate school advantages. Students
shall not be transported at public expense across district lines unless an annual agreement
exists between the respective school boards. This agreement shall outline the
responsibility of each district for providing school facilities, including transportation, and
specify which district shall have exclusive responsibility for providing and operating the
equipment. Unless the agreement shall stipulate otherwise, the rules and regulations of
the district in which the bus is traveling shall be observed.

(2) All school bus routes shall be so planned and adjusted to the capacities of available
equipment and school buses should be so chosen and assigned to routes and attendance
areas that insofar as practicable the full capacity of each bus will be utilized, without
standees, to serve students whose homes are beyond reasonable walking distance of the
assigned public school center.

(3) A reasonable walking distance for any student who is not otherwise eligible for
transportation pursuant to Section 236.083, Florida Statutes, is any distance not more
than two (2) miles between the home and school or one and one-half (1 1/2) miles
between the home and the assigned bus stop. Such distance shall be measured from the
closest pedestrian entry point of the property where the student resides to the closest
pedestrian entry point of the assigned school building or to the assigned bus stop. The
pedestrian entry point of the residence shall be where private property meets the public
right-of-way. The district shall determine the shortest pedestrian route whether or not it is
accessible to motor vehicle traffic.

ARTICLE XII -- HIRING, ASSIGNING AND TRANSFERRING INSTRUCTIONAL PERSONNEL


Section 1.    Hiring and Assignment of Instructional Personnel

The hiring of instructional personnel is a centralized function. The selection of teachers for a
particular location (assignment) is the responsibility of the principal, from among those
employees who have been cleared by instructional staffing as to eligibility to teach in the
M-DCPS.

The parties recognize the organizational and educational value of a diverse, highly qualified
instructional workforce. In that regard, M-DCPS and UTD endorse School Board Rule 6Gx13-
4A-1.01.

Section 2.    Teacher Certification

A.     Certification and recertification of M-DCPS personnel are authorized by Florida Statutes,
       Chapter 1012 and State Board Rule 6A-4.

B.     The M-DCPS Certification Office shall provide verification that applicants are certifiable
       for such programs, as specified by the Contract.

C.     Nothing in this Section shall affect an employee's ability to receive a credential payment
       to which he/she would otherwise be entitled.

D.     It is the express intent of the Board and the Union that teachers shall be assigned in the
       fields for which they are certified. Principals, therefore, have the responsibility to ensure
       that teachers who are hired for a school assignment are appropriately certified for such
       assignment. Furthermore, it is the responsibility of the principal, in assigning or
       scheduling teachers, to ensure that appropriate certification is held by the teacher to be
       assigned or scheduled. Verification of certification held by a teacher or verification of
       certification in process shall be requested by the principal, when necessary, from the
       Office of Human Resources.

E.     Certification

       1.     All teachers shall be appropriately certified. In the event that it is necessary to
              hire a teacher out-of-field, the principal shall obtain verification from Human
              Resources that no qualified applicants are available for the position and the
              principal shall submit an out-of-field waiver request for approval by the Regional
              Center and the Employment and Staffing Officer. The principal shall notify the
              teacher that he/she is required, in order to remain at the school, to earn a
              minimum of six college credits per year or a passing score on a qualifying subject
              area test toward certification in the appropriate field.

       2.     Teachers who are offered employment to teach in the out-of-field areas must
              present to the principal evidence of successful completion of a minimum of six
              semester credit hours or equivalent course work or a passing score on a
              qualifying subject area test towards in-field certification each year.



                                               -25-
ARTICLE XII (cont.)

      3.     Failure to obtain the minimum of six college credits per year or a passing score
             on a qualifying subject area test toward required certification may result in
             termination. Extenuating circumstances may be appealed to the Employment
             and Staffing Officer.

F.    Out-of-field teachers needing the ESOL endorsement must complete three semester
      hours or 60 Master Plan Points (MPP) toward the ESOL endorsement requirements
      within two years of the date of initial ESOL assignment. At least three semester hours
      or 60 MPP toward the ESOL endorsement must be completed each calendar year,
      thereafter, until all requirements for the ESOL endorsement are complete.

G.    A teacher who holds a professional certificate may use college credits or inservice points
      completed in English for Speakers of Other Languages training in excess of six
      semester hours during one certificate- validity period toward renewal of the professional
      certificate during the subsequent validity periods.

H.    A teacher who holds a temporary certificate may use college credits or inservice points
      completed in English for Speakers of Other Languages training toward renewal of the
      teacher!s first professional certificate. Such training must not have been included within
      the degree program, and the teacher!s temporary and professional certificates must be

I.    Newly hired teachers who fail any section of the required general knowledge test must
      participate in training courses offered by the Teacher Education Center or complete
      coursework from an accredited college or university during the first year of employment.

Section 3.   Appointment/Reappointment

A.    All employees of the school system are appointed by the Board, upon the nomination
      of the Superintendent.

B.    Any former employee, who is subsequently reemployed by the Board without a break

      all benefits that would have accrued to him/her had he/she not submitted a resignation.

C.    Any teacher (except those receiving retirement pay from a State of Florida retirement
      program) employed by the Board after the cut-off date for receiving credit for a contract
      year, as provided in state law, shall be employed as a temporary instructor, except
      where otherwise authorized by the appropriate Regional Center Superintendent. Such
      temporary instructors shall receive first consideration for employment in the subsequent
      school year, provided they have been rated acceptable on their annual evaluation.

                                             -26-
ARTICLE XII (cont.)

       Approval for such employment will be made on an individual basis by the Employment
       and Staffing Officer for Human Resources (or designee). Such employees shall be
       rehired as an hourly teacher or as an annual contract teacher and shall receive the
       same pay and benefits as regular teachers for the term of their employment.

C.     Re-employed retirees who accrue sick leave days subsequent to retirement shall be
       paid at the daily rate they earned at the time they first became eligible for retirement.

Section 5.    New Teacher Orientation

Teachers new to M-DCPS shall participate in a five-day orientation which will immediately
precede the first day of school for regular teachers. Such additional days shall be considered
as part of the regular school year and shall be used in computing new teachers' daily rates of
pay for the year. The parties agree to jointly develop, implement, and monitor this orientation
program on an annual basis.

Section 6.    Assignment of Surplus Personnel

A.     In cases where employees are surplus at a work location, as a result of reduction in
       allocation, seniority shall be determined as follows:

       1.     Secondary teachers and middle school teachers teaching secondary subject
              areas -- by subject area taught (with the least contractual credit in the M-DCPS).
              For ESOL teachers, ESOL is the subject area taught. In those instances where
              teachers may be teaching more than one subject area, they shall, for the
              purposes of this Provision, be considered to be teaching the subject area of
              which they have the largest number of classes. For science and foreign
              language, surplus shall be by area of state certification.

       2.     Surplus at the elementary school level and for middle school teachers teaching
              elementary grades shall be from the least senior in the Pre-K-Kindergarten, one
              through six program with the following exceptions:

              a.     Pre-K and Kindergarten teachers shall not be declared surplus if a school
                     does not have a certified Pre-K or kindergarten teacher who can be
                     reassigned to the Pre-K or kindergarten opening;

              b.     ESOL teachers, in pull-out or self-contained classes, shall not be
                     declared surplus if a school does not have a certified/qualified ESOL
                     teacher who can be reassigned to the ESOL opening; and,

              c.     Spanish-S, Spanish SL, and Basic Skills in the Home Language shall be
                     considered as a single category for surplus purposes. However, Basic
                     Skills in the Home Language shall not be declared surplus if a school
                     does not have a linguistically-qualified teacher to deliver the program in
                     the home language of the students.




                                             -27-
ARTICLE XII (cont.)

      3.     Teachers of gifted students shall not be declared surplus if a school does not
             have a certified gifted teacher who can be reassigned to the gifted opening.

      4.     Exceptions to these provisions, based upon the need to provide critically-needed
             programs to meet the unique needs of affected students, and/or in response to
             emergency situations, as declared by the Superintendent, may be requested by
             the principal and will be reviewed by a joint M-DCPS/UTD committee. Such
             requests shall be made, in writing, to the Office of Human Resources.

B.    In determining seniority of an employee, all prior contracted services with the M-DCPS,
      regardless of work location where such service was performed, are to be credited for the
      purpose of determining contract status. Further, in determining seniority at a work
      location, if two or more employees have the same contractual status, seniority shall be
      determined by initial date of employment, as indicated by the date on which the Request
      for Personnel Action (RPA) was executed. Personnel on approved leave from a specific
      work location shall, for the first year of leave, have a guarantee of return to the same
      work location and shall be included in the roster when determining seniority. No surplus
      transfer shall cause a demotion. Demotion shall mean a reassignment in which the
      employee receives less base salary than in the assignment held previously. (This does
      not apply to supplements, compensation in excess of the base salary, or conversion
      from 11-month or 12-month employment to 10-month status.) Surplus assignment from
      an 11-month or 12-month position to a 10-month position may occur only after the Office
      of Human Resources has determined that there are no 11- or 12-month positions
      available in the district for which the employee is certified, and will be done in
      accordance with surplus provisions found in this Article.

C.    In the event that the employee is declared surplus, when the employee is absent from
      active duty in the school system, the employee shall be promptly notified in writing.

D.    Employees who are subject to surplus transfer shall have the right to occupy a position
      for which they are qualified before any new employees are assigned to the same or
      similar position(s).

E.    Employees declared surplus shall not be required to make application for reassignment.
      It shall be the obligation of the Office of Human Resources to reassign and notify all
      surplus employees as soon as possible. Surplus employees may make application for
      reassignment after being notified of surplus status. If accepted to fill a valid vacancy,
      said employees will be reassigned to that vacancy. Notification of such reassignment
      shall be expeditiously made by the Office of Human Resources.

F.    When schools are paired or grouped and grade levels are reassigned between or
      among schools, teachers will be reassigned within the grade levels they are presently
      teaching, whenever possible. If grade levels remain intact, but pupil populations only
      are shifted, teachers will not be reassigned. If the actions described above result in a
      reduction in teacher allocations for any particular school, the surplus personnel will be
      reassigned.




                                            -28-
ARTICLE XII (cont.)

      Surplus personnel resulting from pairing or grouping of schools will be determined as
      follows:

      1.     The person or persons in that school with least contractual credit in the M-DCPS
             (not present school) will be declared surplus.

      2.     In elementary schools and middle schools with elementary grades, the person
             or persons in 1. will be designated from the grade levels, i.e., Pre-K,
             kindergarten, or from grades one through six.

      3.     In secondary schools and middle schools with secondary subject areas, the
             person or persons in 1. will be designated by subject areas.

G.    If the opening of a new school results in a reduction in teacher allocation for any
      particular school(s), the surplus personnel will be assigned to the new school, insofar
      as practical.

H.    Employees should not be reassigned, except as a result of reduction in allocation, or on
      a voluntary basis, or as described in Section 6(L) of this Article.

I.    In the event of a change in the grade configuration of a school, teachers of said school
      will be reassigned in the following manner:

      1.     Teachers of such schools will be notified of the change in grade configuration;

      2.     First consideration will be given to those teachers who request a voluntary
             transfer to the receiving school;

      3.     If there is an insufficient number of voluntary transfer requests, the procedures
             for the transfer of surplus personnel will be implemented, with the least senior
             teachers being surplused to the appropriate level or subject area; and

      4.     Where there are more teachers from sending schools requesting voluntary
             transfers to a receiving school than there are openings in the receiving school,
             the principal will interview all such candidates from the sending schools (of
             students assigned to the receiving school) prior to determining which
             candidate(s) will be selected.

J.    When a new school is built to relieve overcrowding of a school, and/or as a replacement
      for an existing school, teachers will be reassigned in the following manner:

      1.     Teachers of said school will be notified of the openings at the new school and
             the opportunity to request voluntary transfer to schools/areas of their choice;

      2.     First consideration will be given to those teachers who request a voluntary
             transfer to the receiving school;




                                            -29-
ARTICLE XII (cont.)

      3.     Where there are more teachers from sending schools requesting voluntary
             transfer to a school than there are openings in the school, the principal and
             appropriate staff will interview all such candidates from the sending schools (of
             students assigned to the school), prior to determining which candidate(s) will be
             selected; and

      4.     When a surplus is to occur, the procedures for the declaring of personnel surplus
             will be implemented, with the least senior teachers being declared surplus in the
             appropriate level or subject area.

K.    Determinations of surplus personnel for employees assigned by Regional Centers to
      teach art, music, physical education, and exceptional student education at the
      elementary school level shall be governed by the following provisions:

      1.     The least senior person at a work location in an impacted position shall be
             deemed surplus;

      2.     When special student education units at a work location are reduced or moved
             to another school, the least senior person teaching in that particular
             exceptionality shall be deemed surplus; and

      3.     If there is a need to surplus educational specialists, placement specialists, school
             social workers, psychologists, or any other bargaining unit members assigned
             by or at the Regional Centers, the least senior person at a work location in the
             affected job category shall be deemed surplus.

      Exceptions to these provisions, based upon the unique needs of affected students, shall
      be granted upon request of the principal and approval by the Regional Center
      Superintendent or designee. Where requested by the Union, the Regional Center
      Superintendent or designee shall confer with the Union Representative regarding the
      need for such an exception.

L.    Surplus Exemption for Curricular, Co-curricular Activity

      The responsibility of the principal to maintain properly approved curricular and co-
      curricular activities in his/her school is acknowledged. If the declaring of surplus
      personnel, under the provisions of Section 6 of this Article, affects the ability of the
      principal to retain qualified personnel (as determined by the principal) to coach or
      manage these activities, he/she may request approval of the Regional Center
      Superintendent for certain curricular and co-curricular exemptions. Such request(s) with
      supporting rationale shall be in writing with a copy to the Union. Approval by the
      Regional Center Superintendent shall be given in writing to the requesting principal and
      a copy to the Union. Exemptions, pursuant to this Section, are grievable but not subject
      to arbitration. Curricular and co-curricular exemptions may be granted to the following
      positions:




                                             -30-

              interdisciplinary team leader (middle school), debate coach, drama coach,
              yearbook sponsor, newspaper sponsor, band director, choral director, activities
              director, and head coaches of all high school sports teams.

       Building stewards and Union designee, both instructional and non-instructional, shall be
       exempt from the application of surplus transfer criteria, except where an entire program
       is eliminated.

       If the existing Union rules determining the number of stewards at each work location are
       changed, negotiations on this provision may be reopened by the Board.

Section 7.    Voluntary/Hardship Transfers

Recognizing the need to maintain both staff stability and opportunities for employees to transfer
from one work location to another, the Board agrees to provide opportunities for
voluntary/hardship transfers as follows:

A.     Newly-hired teachers will be eligible to submit a transfer application only if he/she has
       been employed at the same work location for a minimum of three school years.

       maintain a master file. A copy of the file will be provided to the bargaining agent.

E.     Teachers who have secured a voluntary transfer to another location will only be released
       after the end of the school year. All notices of transfer will be issued upon receipt of an
       approved transfer agreement from the Office of Human Resources. Approved
       applicants will receive their transfer to the new location effective July 1st. Newly
       approved applications for transfer must be received at least five days prior to the
       opening of school for the new year. Applications received after this deadline may only
       be processed for the current school year if a replacement has been hired before the first
       day of school for students. All other applications will become effective for the next
       school year.

       Each vacancy to be filled by a transfer applicant shall be staffed temporarily for the
       remainder of the school year by an interim teacher or by a teacher from the District
       Teacher Reserve Pool (DTRP).

       Each vacancy will be filled by the approved transferee after the end of the school year.

In order to comply with statutory requirements that every child be provided with a copy of the needed instructional materials in the core
areas of Language Arts, Reading, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies it is the responsibility of the transferring school to send the
instructional materials to the school receiving the student(s).

       in the Student Textbook Automated Inventory Reporting System (STAIRS) to “transfer out” the textbooks being sent to the
       receiving school.
    • The receiving school should update its textbook inventory in the Student Textbook Automated Inventory Reporting System
       (STAIRS) to “transfer in” the textbooks received from the sending school.
    • Both the sending and receiving schools should complete the Textbook Transfer Notification form and return it, via email, to: Ms.
       Valentina Pasarón, Supervisor, Instructional Materials, at vpasaron1@dadeschools.net or fax to 305-995-2489.

SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT.

    (a) LOCAL REVIEW-
   (1) IN GENERAL- Each local educational agency receiving funds under this part shall —
   (A) use the State academic assessments and other indicators described in the State plan to
