Parent "Right to Know"

Under federal No Child Left Behind legislation, parents have the right to ask for information about their children’s classroom teachers or paraprofessionals. This information includes:

•  Whether the teacher is properly certified by the PA Dept. of Education for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.

 Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status in which Pennsylvania licensing criteria have been waived.

 Whether the teacher has any baccalaureate degrees or advanced degrees, and if so the subject of the degrees.

 Whether the child is provided services by a paraprofessional and, if so, the paraprofessional’s qualifications.
