Parents Right to Know

Parents can request information about any teacher of their child. Under federal law, parents have the right to know:
  • whether a teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction
  • whether a teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived
  • the baccalaureate degree major of a teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree
Teacher qualifications can be accessed at Educator Qualification Search
