NOTIFICATION TO PARENTS
Parent’s Right to Know
As per the new Title I legislation, ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act) previously titled NCLB (No Child Left Behind), you may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teacher(s) and paraprofessionals staff.
You may request the following information:
- Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provided instruction;
- Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
- The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree; and
- Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualification.
If you would like further information, feel free to contact us at 315-393-4951.
