Parent’s Right to Know

Dear Parents/Guardians:

As per the new Title I legislation, labeled No Child Left Behind, you may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher(s) and paraprofessional staff.

You may request the following information:

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

C. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree; and

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