Definitions • Teacher • Class • How to Count Classes • Elementary • Secondary
How is a teacher defined? • An individual who provides instruction to students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, grades 1 through grade 12, • or individuals who teach in an environment other than a classroom setting and who maintain daily student attendance records. • Assignments reported with position 53 and assignments 0001, 0002, 0003, and 0970 do not submit number of classes.
How is a class defined? • A class is a setting in which organized instruction of course content is provided to one or more students (including cross-age groupings) for a given period of time. • Instruction, provided by one or more teachers or other staff members, may be delivered in person or via a different medium. • Classes that share space should be considered as separate classes if they function as separate units for more than 50 percent of the time.
How to count classes for teachers in elementary classes? • count self-contained classrooms as one class-first graders would count as teaching one class. • To avoid over representing subject area specialists and resource teachers (examples, art teacher, music teacher, etc.), subject area specialists and resource teachers should also be counted as teaching one class at the elementary level.
How to count classes for teachers in secondary classes? • Each subject taught for which students are receiving credit toward graduation should be counted.
Should middle school classes be reported as elementary or secondary? • Middle school teachers in departmentalized setting should be counted like the secondary teachers. • If middle school teachers are not in a departmentalized setting, they should be counted like the elementary teachers. • Schools identified as middle, junior high, and high school on the PI-1280 Public School Update would have teachers reported as secondary.
