Title I Parent Policies

Title I Parent Policies and Information 

Parent’s Right to Know

             One of the requirements of the federal accountability law, “No Child Left Behind Act” (NCLB) (P.L. 107-110) is that every parent of a student in a Title I school has the right to request and receive information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teacher(s).  This information shall include:

  • If the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject area taught;
  • If the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status in which Indiana qualifications and licensing criteria are waived;
  • The teacher’s baccalaureate degree major, graduate certifications, and field of discipline; and
  • Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.

If at any time a student has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher not highly qualified, the parents will be notified by the school of this information. If you have any questions, contact your child’s school principal.
