Schools and districts assure that all students are taught by appropriately certified teachers at all levels and in all content areas. WDE completes an annual staffing review using the WDE602 report to monitor this assurance and assist districts to prevent misassignments of staff. The State Board has a "no tolerance" policy for staffing misassignments. If a misassignment is found in any school, the district's accreditation status will be impacted for that year.
Districts submit the WDE602 report each year in October. This report contains employment and assignment information on all district staff. One of the uses for data from this report is to verify that staff assignments match current licenses. A potential misassignments report is generated from the data and reviewed with each district. Results are reported to the State Board in May as part of the accreditation decisions. Corrective action is required for any misassignment.
