Explanation: FY 2003 data established the baseline. We had originally reported on recruits, but data for 2005 are based on participants. Participants are defined as those receiving financial support from the Troops-to-Teachers program in either a stipend or a bonus. ''Highly qualified'' is defined as those Troops-to-Teachers participants hired by an eligible school district, including those in alternate route programs. For measure (a), the denominator is the total number of highly qualified Troops teachers since January 2002 divided by the total number of Troops participants. For measure (b), the denominator is the total number of math or science teachers since January 2002 divided by the total number of Troops participants since January 2002. For (c), the target group of 851 Troops participants who began teaching in the 2003-2004 school year is being tracked. The earliest data available will be from 2006. 2003 data for all measures were recalculated using above definitions.
