1) professional learning standards, and/or

2) related experience, and/or

3) whether the most recent evaluation on file is below standards, and/or

5) the relevance of qualifications and/or prior to teaching experience to the sections to be taught (although not meant to be or considered as a proscriptive, two examples of many variations and possibilities include: English experience being assessed for teaching History, and vice versa, would be sufficiently relevant, but English experience for teaching Physics or Math, and vice versa, would not be sufficiently relevant).
