You have the right to know the teaching qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher in a school receiving Title I funds (Cambridge Primary School, Cambridge Intermediate School, and Cambridge Middle School). The federal Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires that any school district receiving Title I funds must notify parents of each student attending any school receiving Title I funds that they may request, and the district will provide the parents on request (and in a timely manner), information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers, including at a minimum, the following:
Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher; and
Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
If you wish to request this information, please contact the Director of Federal Programs at 740-439-3895.
