Every Student Succeeds Act: Parents’ Right to Know
Your child is attending a school which is receiving Title I federal funds through the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA).
Local educational agencies receiving Title I funds are required to notify parents whose student(s) attend a Title I school that they may request, and the agency will provide the parents on request (and in a timely manner), information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers, including at a minimum:
1. Whether the student’s teacher:
• Has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
• Is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and
• Is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.
2. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
If you would like this information, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
