Parents' Right-To-Know

In accordance with Title I of the No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act of 2001, parents through the Right-to Know provision, may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher(s) and/or the qualification of paraprofessionals providing services to their child. Additionally, parents may request information about their child’s level of achievement on any state academic assessments. This Right-to-Know applies to any and all schools receiving Title I funds. For that information, parent/guardians are to send written requests to the school principal or the system Human Resource Coordinator.

Please be aware that you may request, and the school will provide in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teacher(s), including the following:

 

o   Whether the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.

 

o   Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

 

o   The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.

    • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualification.
