NCLB Parent Notification of Teacher Qualifications

STAFF QUALIFICATIONS - from student handbook

The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 gives parents the right to get information about the professional qualification of their child’s classroom teachers.  Upon request, West Holt Public Schools will give parents the following information about their child’s classroom teacher.

  1. Whether the teacher teaching has met State qualifications 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 teaching certificate.
  3. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher.  You may also get information about other graduate certification or degrees held by the teacher, and whether your child is being provided services by a paraprofessional and, if so, the qualifications of the paraprofessional.


The request for information should be made to the administrator in your child’s school building.  The information will be provided to you in a timely manner.  Finally, West Holt Public Schools will give timely notice to you if your child has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks, by a teacher who does not meet the requirements of the Act.
