The highly qualified status requirements under the No Child Left Behind Act have been replaced by the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The reporting of highly qualified teacher status by school corporations is no longer required. ESSA requires teachers be “properly licensed.” In order to ensure teachers are properly licensed, please visit for the most recent “assignment code” language.
