Parents & Students

Parents Right-to-Know

At the beginning of each school year, a student’s parents/guardians may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their student’s teacher/s. Specifically, the parent has the right-to-know:
  • whether a teacher has met state qualifications for license and certification,
  • whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional certificate, and
  • the baccalaureate and graduate degree majors of the teacher/s
Additionally, parents may request information concerning whether the student will be provided assistance from paraprofessionals and, if so, the qualifications of the paraprofessional.

Timely notification also is required if a student receives instruction from an unqualified teacher for four or more consecutive weeks.
