     Parents' Right to Know

    Parents have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of their child's classroom teacher in a school receiving Title I funds.  The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that any school district receiving Title I funds must notify parents that they may request and receive information regarding the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teachers, including at a minimum, the following:


    • Notification that your child has not been taught by a Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT) for 4+ consecutive weeks

    • 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 qualifications or licensing criteria have been waived

    • Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of certification of the teacher

    • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications


    Please contact your school principal for this information.
