If you so choose, you may request information related to the following areas:
- Whether the teacher has met the State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction
- Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification and licensing criteria have been waived
- The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and the field discipline of the certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field discipline of the certification or degree
- Whether the child is provided services by teaching assistants, and if so their qualifications
You are also entitled to receive information on your child's level of achievement in any of the State academic assessments. This is typically done through a mailing by the school when the results from the State assessments are available.
Please be assured that the District recruits and employs highly qualified professionals to work with all children in your child's school and that the program received by your child is of high quality.
Please feel free to contact the principal of your child's school should you have any questions regarding the above.
