WS/FCS Parent’s Right to Know
In accordance with ESEA Section 1111(h)(6) PARENTS RIGHT-TO-KNOW, WS/FCS is notifying every family of a student in a Title I school that you have the right and may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers and/or teacher assistants.
This information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers and teachers' assistants includes, at a minimum, the following:
- 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 qualifications or licensing criteria have been waived.
- The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certificate or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certificate or degree.
- Whether the child is provided services by teacher assistants and, if so, their qualifications.
If you would like to request the qualifications of your child’s teacher and/or teacher assistant, please complete this form, Request Qualifications Form or contact the WS/FCS Title I Office at 336-748-4000.
In addition, your child’s school will notify you at any time your child has been taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by a teacher not meeting state professional qualifications.
