No Child Left Behind

Request Information on Teacher and Paraprofessional Qualifications

The federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 allows parents/guardians of children who attend Title I funded schools to request information about the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers and/or paraprofessional staff.  Parents/guardians of children in Title I schools should have received a letter from the school principal advising them of their right to request this information. 

 

To assist parents/guardians with children in Title I schools who elect to request this information, we have developed a request form that can be downloaded and printed in the parent’s native language by clicking on the appropriate link below.

 

To use this Parent Request Form, please follow these instructions:

 

·     Download and print the form by clicking on the appropriate language
 

·     Complete the portion of the form entitled “To Be Completed By Parent/Guardian”

·     Forward the completed form to your child’s school principal

 

The form will be returned to you by mail after it has been completed by your child’s principal and regional personnel office.
