    The decision has been made to have 90 minute classes. One teaches math, one ELA, and on soc/sci. Most of us are elementary teachers, so we don't have a problem with being highly qualified. Those few teachers we have that are qualified in a single subject for 6-12 will teach the subject they are qualified for. They all have English licenses, so it wasn't a problem.

    WE are all HQ as k-8 teachers. At the 6th grade level we are not allowed to specialize in a single subject (teach more than one block a day) unless we are HQ in that specific area.

    Sorry, did not mean to make it sound like we were full of non-HQ teachers!

    Hmm, must be a state rule. I know that as long as I teach grades 1-6 it doesn't matter how many subjects I teach. I looked it up just to be on the safe side before my school decided to switch the schedule around.

    I'm not sure if it is a state rule or not. I do know that we have been able to departmentalize until this new school year. I am just a few points away from being HQ in social studies.
