Parents’ Right to Know

The Parents' Right to Know provision requires that two types of communication be provided to parents of students in Title I schools.

Parent notification by district: A district receiving Title I funds must send a notification to parents, informing them of their right to request information on the qualifications of their child's teacher. The information that the district must provide (if requested) includes the following:

*Whether or not the teacher has met the certification requirements of the state.

*Whether or not the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status.

*The bachelor's degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher in the field or discipline of his or her certificate or degree.

*Whether or not the child receives service from a paraprofessional and, if so, his or her qualifications.
 
Parent notification by school: Additionally, schools receiving federal Title I Funds must send parents certain information in a timely manner, in a language that is understandable, to the extent that is feasible. Title I schools must provide the following:

*Information on the child’s level of achievement on state assessments.

*Timely notice that the child has been assigned to or been taught by a teacher who does not meet the highly qualified teacher requirements for four or more consecutive weeks (20days)

*Parent notifications are meant to encourage parent involvement and improve communication between the family and the school. Districts and schools have a great deal of flexibility in designing these notices. NCLB describes the minimum amount of information to be provided. Districts and schools can provide additional information to ensure that parents more fully understand the notification.
*Contact your principal to determine whether your school receives Title I funds and whether these parent notification requirements apply to your school.
