Parents' Right to Know
Parent Notification Letter
Date: August 2019
Dear Parents and Guardians:
In accordance with the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), Section 1111 (h)(6)(A) PARENTS’ RIGHT-TO-KNOW, this is notification from Moore Public Schools to every parent of a student in a Title I school that you have the right to request and receive information in a timely manner regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s classroom teachers. The information regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s classroom teachers shall include the following:
- If the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas taught;
- If the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status in which the state qualifications and licensing criteria are waived;
- The teachers baccalaureate degree major, graduate certification, and field of discipline; and
- Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications
In addition to the above information you will be notified if your student has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher that is not highly qualified.
Parents and families of students in Title I schools also have a right to know about state or district policies regarding student participation in any assessments mandated by ESSA, including any policy, procedure, or parental right to opt students out of such assessments. If you would like to receive information about this topic, please contact Kristy Hernandez, Director of Student Services, either by phone at (405) 735-4297, or in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact your school principal.
