RD122 - Commonwealth of Virginia Critical Shortage Teaching Endorsement Areas for 2017-2018 School Year

Executive Summary:

The Appropriation Act 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 and the Instructional Personnel Data Collection sent by the Department of Education to each of Virginia’s school division superintendents in October 2015, to determine qualifications for teachers and administrators. Information requested on the survey was based on school data reports as of October 1, 2015. These data were used to determine 2017-2018 critical shortage teaching endorsement areas in Virginia.
