Certification Requirements

The District searches for the most qualified, fully-credentialed candidates for principals consideration in filling teacher vacancies. The majority of teachers hired in the district possess full state certification at the time of employment. These candidates will be given preference in the screening and selection process for employment.

Alternative Certification Programs

In identified “critical needs” areas, principals may give consideration to candidates admitted to Alternative Certification Programs (ACP’s) with official approval and sanction by the Texas Education Agency. There are a few local and regional post-baccalaureate programs leading to master’s degrees and teacher certification in “critical needs” areas whose candidates may also be given consideration.

The District considers ACP teacher candidates, which have taken and passed content area TExES certification exam, for the following “critical needs” shortage areas to complete field experience/clinical teaching requirements.

  • Special Education
  • Languages Other than English
  • Bilingual
  • Technology Applications
  • Computer Science
  • Health Science Technology
  • Family Consumer Science Education
  • Technology Education
  • Deaf or Hard of Hearing

The District does not administer an in-house Alternative Certification Program.

"I started subbing for NEISD and I kind of fell in love with middle school all over again. That experience showed me that NEISD is a cool place to be. The culture and community are consistent at every campus, from student to student and teacher to teacher. It’s the entire District and that’s something I’ve always looked for."

"I just love what I do. I love what I do for the children, especially in this time during the pandemic I’m so glad we’re able to provide meals to our families. They really need it and that’s one of the reasons we’re offering the weekend meals. I love what I do and I’m passionate about it. I know most of the kids here. We know them by name and it feels so good to be a part of their life. We are like a family here. We have a great team environment. We help each other and we enjoy working together."
