HOUSSE stands for High Objective Uniform State Standard of Evaluation. NCLB requires teachers to be Highly Qualified by possessing a teaching license and demonstrating subject matter competency in the core academic areas in which he or she teaches. States have been allowed to create High Objective Uniform State Standards of Evaluation (HOUSSE) as an alternative way to demonstrate subject matter competency for certain categories of teachers. Currently, Colorado has created (1) an Elementary HOUSSE for Veteran Teachers, (2) a Secondary HOUSSE for Multi- Subject Special Education Teachers, and (3) a Secondary HOUSSE for Multi-Subject Rural Teachers.
