Parents Right to Know
Did you know that you have the right to know the qualifications of your child’s teachers and paraprofessionals?
You may request the following information:
- Whether the teacher has met the State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
- Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived;
- What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including the field of discipline of the certification or degree;
- Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so their qualifications.
