Parents Right to Know

  • Title I schools must meet federal regulations related to teacher qualifications and state assessments as defined in the ESEA (Elementary and Secondary Education Act) and ESSA (Every Student Succeeds Act). 

    Parents have a right to know:

    • The qualifications of their child's teacher
    • Information on the level of achievement of their child
    • If their child is being taught by someone who is not "highly qualified" and will be in that position for four or more weeks
    • The school's parent policy and have input in the decisions that make up the school's policy
    • How your child's school is performing 


    The Title I Annual Parents Right to Know Notification documents describe a parent's right to know and request their child's teacher qualifications and state assessment information.
