"Highly Qualified" Information for Maine Educators and Administrators
No Child Left Behind Act
Here on the Maine Department of Education's "HQTP" Web pages, you will find access to general information about the the federal No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) as well as specifics about its implementation in Maine.
All HQTP documentation is completed and stored at the local District level. Please do not send individual documentation of "highly qualified" status to the Maine Department of Education (MDOE). Teachers and Paraprofessionals should always maintain copies of all HQTP documents in their own records.
Districts report their HQTP data to MDOE on a yearly basis via the web-based MEDMS system. In every school district, there is someone designated as the “HQTP Official.” In many cases this is the Building Principal, or someone at the Superintendent’s Office. If you are not presently employed, any school official can verify and sign your documentation. Always keep a copy so that you can present it in the event of employment in a public school.
