Parents' Right to Know

Under federal law, parents have the right to know:
  • whether a teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
  • whether a teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
  • the baccalaureate degree major of a teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree;

Please contact your school's principal if you wish to request any of the above information.
