PARENT’S RIGHT TO KNOW
School districts are required to notify parents of ALL children in ALL Title I schools in the beginning of each year, that parents have the right to request and receive timely information on the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers. This requirement applies to all parents of the children in the school-whether or not the students receive Title I services-and all Title I schools, both targeted assistance and schoolwide.
Norman County East is a Schoolwide school using Federal Title I monies to assist our students.
When a parent requests information on their child’s classroom teacher’s professional qualifications, districts must respond in a timely manner, to the requested information, at a minimum, report the following:
· Whether or not the teacher has met Minnesota’s licensing requirements for the grade level and core academic subject they teach.
· Whether or not the teacher is teaching under a variance status.
· The education level and subject area of the teacher’s college degree major and any graduate degree or certificate held.
· Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.
Schools that receive Title I funds shall provide to each parent:
· Information on the level of achievement of the parent’s child on the state academic assessments.
· Timely notice that the parent’s child has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks, by a teacher who is not highly qualified.
This information provided to parents shall be in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practicable, provided in a language that the parents can understand.
This notification must take place at the start of each school year.
