RD133 - Commonwealth of Virginia Critical Shortage Teaching Endorsement Areas for 2013-2014 School Year

Executive Summary:
The Appropriation Act (Item 138, paragraph G.1, Chapter 3, 2012 Acts of Assembly), requires the Department of Education to report annually to the General Assembly on the critical teaching shortage areas in Virginia. In response to this requirement, data were obtained from the Supply and Demand Survey for School Personnel sent by the Department of Education to each of Virginia’s school division superintendents in October 2011, to determine qualifications for teachers and administrators. Information requested on the survey was based on school data reports as of October 1, 2011. These data were used to determine 2013-2014 critical shortage teaching endorsement areas in Virginia.
