Parent Right to Know Letter

  • According to the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (Public Law 114-95), you have the right to know certain information concerning schools that receive grant funding from Title I, Part A—Improving the Academic Achievement of the Disadvantaged.

    Upon your request, SSD is required to provide to you in a timely manner, the following information:

    • 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
    • whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications

    In addition to the information that parents may request, a building receiving Title I.A funds must provide to each individual parent:

    • information on the level of achievement and academic growth of your student, if applicable and available, on each of the State academic assessments required under Title I.A.
    • timely notice that your student has been assigned, or has been taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who has not met applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.
