If a parent/legal guardian requests it, the school district will provide information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers, including, at a minimum, the following:
- whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
- whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional licensing status through which state qualification or 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 of discipline of the certification or degree;
- whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
In addition, the school district will provide parent/legal guardians with information as to the level of achievement of their child in each of the state academic assessments. The school district will provide notice to parent/legal guardians if their child has been assigned to, or taught for four or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who is not highly qualified.
