Parents Right to Know
In accordance with the No Child Left Behind Act, parents have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct their children. Federal law allows parents to ask for certain information about their children’s classroom teachers, and requires schools to give parents this information in a timely manner if requested. Specifically, parents have the right to ask for the following information about their children’s classroom teachers:
1. Whether Oklahoma State Department of Education has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches
2. Whether Oklahoma State Department of Education has decided that the teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualifies under state regulations because of special circumstances
3. The teacher’s college major: whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and, if so, the subject of the degrees
4. Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.
To receive any of this information, please call Human Resources at 918-299-4415, ext. 2305.
Patrons also have the right to review the Title I Parent Involvement Plan. To receive a copy for review, please contact Debra Ensminger at 918-299-4415, ext. 2344, or via e-mail by clicking on her name.
