Title 1


You have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher in a school receiving Title I funds. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that  any school district receiving Title I funds must notify parents of each student attending any  school receiving Title I funds that they may request, and the district will provide the parents on  request (and in a timely manner), information regarding the professional qualifications of the  student’s classroom teachers, including at a minimum, the following: 

I. Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade  levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction; 

II. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or another provisional status through  which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and 

III. Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the  teacher; 

IV. Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications. 

You have the right to know that you may request, and the local educational agency will provide the parents on request (and in a timely manner), information regarding any State or local educational agency policy regarding student participation in any assessments mandated by section 1111(b)(2) and by the State or local educational agency, which shall include a policy, procedure, or parental right to opt the child out of such assessment, where applicable.
