Parents' Right to Know

At the beginning of each school year, a local educational agency that receives Title I funds shall notify the parents of each student attending Title I schools that the parents may request, and the LEA will provide in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers, including, at a minimum 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 have been waived. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teachers, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

This information is to be collected and disseminated in a manner that protects the privacy of individuals.
