Federal law requires that each school district receiving Title 1 funds notify parents of each student attending any school receiving these funds that information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher(s) may be requested.
As a parent of a student attending a school receiving federal program funds, you have the right to know:
Is my child’s teacher licensed to teach the grades and subject(s) assigned?
Is my child’s teacher teaching with a provisional license, meaning the state has waived requirements for my child’s teacher?
What is the college major of my child’s teacher?
What degree or degrees does my child’s teacher hold?
If there are instructional aides working with my child, what are their qualifications?
If my child is or will be taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks this year by a teacher who is not highly qualified, will I be notified in a timely manner?
