Right to Know Professional Qualifications of Teachers and Paraprofessionals



Date:  4 MAY 2017


Dear Parents,


In compliance with the requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, the Pierce County School District would like to inform you that you may request information about the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) and/or paraprofessionals.  The following information may be requested:


1)      Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;

2)      Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and

3)      Is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.

4)      Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.


If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teacher’s and/or paraprofessional’s professional qualifications, please contact the Principal, Dr. Walker Todd at 912.807.0084.
