Under the federal law, No Child Left Behind, you have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher, including the following:
- Whether the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas taught;
- Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status;
- The college degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification;
- Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so, their qualifications.
You may access this information by contacting the building principal of the school where your child attends or by contacting the district’s office of Human Resources (887-5000).
