Parent's Right to Know

The No Child Left Behind legislation states:

Parents have the right to know the qualifications of their child’s teacher and/or teacher assistant. Parents may request information pertaining to the teacher’s or teacher assistant’s qualifications, license for the grade level or subjects taught, and the degree(s) held by the teacher, or services provided by the paraprofessionals. Parents may request written documentation of their teacher’s qualifications by contacting the Federal Programs Coordinator at 534-1957 and completing the required form. The district will notify parents of a child whose teacher is not “highly qualified” or if a long-term substitute is required for a period of more than four weeks.

The district will also distribute information on how to obtain a school report card for the district and school each year.

Information pertaining to a child’s level of achievement in each of the state academic assessments will be provided to parents during the first nine weeks grading period of the school year.
