Parent Right to Know

Parents Right to Know

As a parent of a student enrolled in a Title I school, you have the right to know the  professional qualifications of the classroom teachers and instructional assistants who instruct your child.

Federal law allows you to ask for the following information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires the District to give you this information in a timely manner:

• whether the teacher is certified to teach the subjects and/or grade levels the teacher is teaching,
• whether the teacher’s certificate is a waiver or substandard certificate,
• the teacher’s academic major, graduate degrees, if any, and
• the teacher’s certification area
