Teacher Qualifications

At the beginning of each school year, a district that received Title I funds must notify parents that they may request information about the professional qualifications of their children's classroom teacher. If a parent requests the information, it must include at least whether the teachers have met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas taught: whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status: the baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification. The information must also disclose whether the school is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications. A Title I school must also give timely notice that the parent's child has been assigned or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.
