Parents Right-To-Know Annual Notice

Dear Families,

At the beginning of each school year, federal law requires Title I schools to notify the parents of each student

attending the school that the parents may request, and the district must provide the parents on request (and in a

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 an emergency or other provisional status through which State

qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

· Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.

· Whether the child is provided services by teacher assistants and, if so, their qualifications.

The request for the professional qualifications of any teacher or teacher assistant must be made in writing by the

parent or legal guardian to the school Principal.

Each Title I school must provide timely notice to parents if a student has been taught four or more consecutive weeks

by a teacher who does not meet applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and

subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.

Parents of students in a Title I school have the right to request and be provided with information regarding any state

or local educational agency policy regarding student participation in any assessments mandated by the state or local

education agency and make available the following information for each grade level served by the district:

· the subject matter assessed.

· the purpose for which the assessment is designed and used.

· the source of the requirement for the assessment and, if available, the schedule for the assessment and

the time and format for disseminating results.

This information can be requested in writing to the principal or by visiting the Test & Accountability website at
