Our school district receives Federal funds for Title I programs. One of the conditions for receiving these funds is to notify parents/guardians of their right to request and to receive information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers and paraprofessionals.
By law, you have the right to ask for the following:
? Whether your child’s teacher has met the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) certification criteria for the subject area(s) and grade level(s) in which the teacher provides instruction;
? Whether NCDPI requirements have been waived to allow the teacher to teach under emergency or other provisional status;
? The teacher’s college major and the field of discipline or specialization for any advanced degrees/certifications held by the teacher;
? Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications; and
? Your child’s level of achievement in each of the state academic assessments.
If you would like to receive any of the above information, please feel free to call
828-633-6491and ask to speak to the principal of your respective school: Lower, Middle or Upper.
Thank you for your continued interest and involvement in your child’s education.
