Re: Every Student Succeeds Act (Public Law 114-95) Section 1112 (e) (1) (A)
You have a right to know about the teaching qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher in a school receiving Title 1 funds. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that any school district receiving Title 1 funds must notify parents of each student attending any school receiving Title 1 funds that may request, and the district will provide the parents on request, (and in 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 the State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and
- Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher;
- Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
You may ask for the information by returning this letter to the address listed above. Or you may fax or email you request to the above listed fax number or email address. Be sure to give the following information with your request:
