A Parent's Right to Know
The Greene County School District is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he/she needs to succeed in school and beyond. With Title I schools in the district, we must meet federal regulations related to teacher qualifications as defined in ESEA. These regulations allow you to learn more about your child’s teacher’s training and/or credentials. We are happy to provide this information to you. At any time, you may ask:
- Whether the teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject he/she is teaching,
- Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications are waived, and
- Whether undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s)or areas of concentration.
You may also ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional. If your child receives assistance, we can provide you with information about the paraprofessional’s qualifications.
We work very hard to make sure your child has a high quality education. Our commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled.
If you have any questions about your child's assignment to a teacher or paraprofessional, pleace feel free to contact your child's principal at anytime.
