RIGHT TO KNOW

As a parent or guardian, you are entitled to request information about the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher(s) and any paraprofessionals who assist in the classroom, including:

  • Whether the teacher has met State certification 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 State certification criteria have been waived
  • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the discipline of the certification or degree
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and, if so, their qualifications

Most of this information is available via the directory of teachers and staff above. If you are interested in obtaining any further information, please send a written request to:
