Although some Indiana schools are performing adequately with regard to annual tests, many are not. In 2011, for example, only 51 percent of schools met No Child Left Behind's adequate yearly progress. While 68 percent of elementary schools earned this achievement, only 34 percent of middle schools and 20 percent of high schools met AYP for 2011. In response, the state has recently initiated an innovation fund of $5 million to help improve some of these problems. Indiana schools can compete for this grant, and the most innovative idea wins. Teachers can earn add-on certificates in Indiana teacher shortage areas to improve their chances of finding employment. Indiana's teacher shortage areas for 2011-2012 include journalism, math, reading, social studies, and English as a New Language (ENL).
At Indiana Wesleyan University, teachers can choose from on-campus or online programs. The College of Adult and Professional Studies offers a principal certificate program, as well as an add-on certificate in mild intervention. This is a teacher shortage area for 2011-2012. At Purdue University Calumet, already-licensed K-12 teachers can earn an add-on certificate in ENL that will allow them to add this high-need area to their licenses. The 17-hour program is run using cohort groups. At Valparaiso University, teachers can earn an advanced certificate in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). The program is 15 credits, but students can transfer up to 9 credits from related majors.
