Parents' Right to Know

TO: All Parents in Title I Schools

FROM: Janet Morris, Director of Federal Programs

RE: 2022-23 Notification to Parents of Teacher Qualifications 

The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) law requires school districts to notify parents of children attending a Title I school of their right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct their child.  

As a recipient of Title I funds, Nash County Public Schools will provide, to you, information concerning qualifications of your child’s teacher. Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:  

  • Whether the teacher meets the state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grades and subjects that he or she teaches.  

  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status due to special circumstances.  

  • The teacher’s college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.  

  • Whether teacher assistants provide services to your child and, if so, their qualifications.  

In addition, the law requires that all schools that receive Title I funds must provide notification to every parent in the school whose child is being taught for four or more weeks by a teacher who does not meet “Highly Effective” criteria, regardless of whether or not the teacher is being paid with Title I funds.  

Nash County Public Schools is committed to providing quality instruction for all students and does so by employing the most qualified individuals to teach and support each student in the classroom. If you would like to receive any of the information listed above for your child’s teacher, please complete the enclosed form and return to the school.
