Central Elementary Out of Field List

In accordance with Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) [PL 114-95, Section 112 (e)(1)(B)(ii), requires that schools report when a teacher is assigned teaching duties in a class dealing with subject matter that is outside the field in which the teacher is certified. All teachers at Central Elementary School meet the Florida Department of Education requirements to teach in public schools. This includes certification in an educational subject area as well as, at a minimum, a bachelor's degree from an accredited university. The table below lists all Central Elementary School teachers identified as out-of-field for the 2019-2020 school year. The chart also includes current certification held by the teacher and the certification needed to earn in-field designation.
