Parents' Right to Know

As a parent/guardian with a student attending a school that receives Title I funds, you have the right to know the qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher. The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act requires that any local school district receiving Title I funds must provide the following information to parents/guardians who ask about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher:

  • Whether the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or temporary status that waives state licensing requirements.
  • The undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification (such as National Board Certification) held by the teacher and the field of discipline of certification or degree.
  • Whether your child is provided services by instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

All requests must be made in writing and should include the following information: student’s full name, legal parent/guardian’s full name, address, city, state, zip code and teacher’s name.

Highly Qualified Teacher (HQT)

As a parent/guardian of a student who qualifies for Title I services, please know that your student is being taught by a High Qualified Teacher in that subject area. You will be notified if your student has been assigned or has been taught four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet those qualifications.
