NCLB-Parents Right To Know
In compliance with the requirements of the No Child Left Behindstatute, parents may request information about the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher(s). The following information may be requested:
*Whether the teacher has met the Georgia Professional Standards Commission requirements for certification for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
*Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status through which Georgia qualifications or certification have been waived;
*The college major and any graduate certification or degree held by the teacher;
*Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.
As documentation, maintain parent signature pages from student handbooks or other documentation for each student registered in the school. As additional students are registered throughout the school year, parent signature pages will be collected and maintained.
