Explanation: ''Participants'' are those receiving financial support from the Troops-to-Teachers program, either stipend or bonus. Both participants and recruits receive funding from the program and the words are used interchangeably. ''Eligible school district '' is a high-need LEA as defined by program regulations. ''Teachers of record'' are those Troops participants hired by an eligible school district, and all Troops teachers are highly qualified. Measure (a): the calculation is the total number of highly qualified Troops teachers since Jan. 2002 divided by the total number of Troops participants since Jan. 2002. Measure (b): the total number of math or science or special education Troops teachers since Jan. 2002 divided by the total number of Troops participants since Jan. 2002. Measure (b) includes special education teachers in order to track priority subject areas in the NCLB statute. For FY 2006, measure (c) will report on Troops participants who began teaching in the 2003-04 school year, for 2007 those who began teaching in 2004-05; for 2008 those who began teaching in 2005-06. The FY 2005 data were not collected. The goal is to maintain the same percentage of retention over the years.
