Parent Request for Information
Notice of Right to Know Teacher Qualifications
Although all of our Greeneview teachers have met the requirements to be classified as Highly Qualified Teachers, parents have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher in a school receiving Title I funds.
The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act requires that any local school district receiving Title I funds must notify parents that they may ask about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher.
These qualifications include:
1. Whether the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.
2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state licensing requirements.
3. The undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification (such as National Board Certification) held by the teacher and the field of discipline of certification or degree.
4. Whether your child is provided services by instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
You may ask for the information by returning this letter in person or at the school address. Be sure to give the following information with your request:
