FEDERAL PROGRAMS: TITLE I
Parents Right to Know Information
As a parent of a child attending a school that is receiving Title I federal dollars, you have the right to know if your child is assigned to or taught for four (4) consecutive weeks by a teacher who has a Bachelor Degree but does not hold the appropriate state certification.
Presently your child is being taught by a substitute or a teacher who is not appropriately state certified. This includes teacher holding a State Emergency Certification, taking the required credits toward his/her permanent certification to make him/her “Appropriately State Certified” as required by the Every Student Succeeds Act.
A professional development plan is currently being implemented with the teacher. In the meantime, we will be closely monitoring the delivery of education services to your child, in order to ensure a quality education from the teacher assigned to the classroom.
