Re: Parents Right to Know


Dear Parent/Guardian:

At the beginning of each school year, we are mandated to notify every parent or guardian in this Title I school that you may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teacher and/or paraprofessional.

Therefore, please note the following:

Your child's teacher has met one of the following criteria to be eligible to teach in your child's classroom this school year:

► Your child's teacher has met the State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject area.

► Your child's teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

► Your child's teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of their certification.

Additionally, if your child is being served by a paraprofessional during this school year, please be assured that the paraprofessional has been properly qualified and or certified for this position.

If you have any questions regarding the qualifications of your child's teacher or paraprofessional, please feel free to contact your school principal. For additional information about ESSA, Section 1112(e)(l)(A), please visit the RI Department of Education's website: http://www.ride.ri.gov/
