Limitations of the Points-Based High Objective Uniform State Standard of Evaluation (HOUSSE) Form

In 2013, the U.S. Department of Education strongly encouraged OSPI to limit the use of the HOUSSE form in all areas with the exception of special education. The effective date for limiting district use of the Points-Based HOUSSE is August 31, 2014 (010-14M).

The HOUSSE Appeal request window closed on February 2, 2015.

Special Education Teacher Exception
After August 31, 2014, districts may only use a “revised” version HOUSSE form to document content expertise in core academic subject areas for special education teachers. The revised Special Education HOUSSE forms are available in the 2014-2015 HQT Data Collection Tool.
