Parent's Right To Know

I. Teacher & Paraprofessional Qualifications

Parents may inquire:

  • Has the teacher met Georgia qualifications and licensing criteria for grade levels and subject areas in which teacher provides instruction
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status; Georgia qualification/licensing criteria waived
  • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher, along with graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of that certificate or degree
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications (Section 1111(h)(6)A)

II. Non-Highly Qualified Teachers

Each Candler County School will provide to each individual parent a timely notice that the parent's child has been assigned or taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is NOT highly qualified (Section 1111(h)(6)B)
