Title I: Parents Right to Know

Dear Parents/Guardians,

We are pleased to notify you that in accordance with the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, you have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s teacher. Specifically, you may request the following:

  • Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria has been waived.
  • 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 qualifications.

Resumes are available upon request at your child’s school. Please see the Receptionist or Office Manager for more information.

Sincerely,

Kimberly Saffell

Director of Federal Programs
