The Wisconsin Department of Education basically defines Highly Qualified Teachers as educators who hold a teaching license in their area of content. Milwaukee Collegiate Academy is committed to hiring qualified licensed educators. Teachers are required to have at least a Bachelor’s Degree (Master’s preferred), have a current Wisconsin teacher’s license in their content area and ideally have at least two years teaching experience.
Wisconsin ESEA (Implementation of the “No Child Left Behind” Act) Requirements for Paraprofessionals requires paraprofessionals have at least 48 hours of college credits or an Associates Degree.
Milwaukee Collegiate Academy requires Paraprofessionals to have at least 60 credits. All of our paraprofessionals meet or exceed the ESEA requirements and several have Bachelor’s degrees and Wisconsin teaching licenses.
