Dear Parents and Families,
This letter is to inform you that USD383 receives federal Title I funding and will comply with the “Parents Right to Know Information” required by No Child Left Behind [Section 1111(6)(A) ESEA.]
We are very proud of our teachers and programs to support student growth. Our educators are ready and prepared to give your child a high-quality experience to advance their skills, experiences and learning. Federal guidelines give you the right to know about your child’s teachers’ credentials and school performance. We are happy to provide this information to you. At any time, you may ask:
- whether your child’s teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject he/she is teaching;
- whether your child’s teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived; and
- what degrees your child’s teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration.
You may ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional and, if your child receives this assistance, we can provide you with information about the paraprofessional’s qualifications. Title I schools are also required to notify every parent when a student is being taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a classroom teacher who is not highly qualified.
As part of our commitment to keep you informed, you may also request information at any time on your child’s achievement on district and State assessments as well as your school’s performance as reflected on Kansas State Department of Education building report cards and Kansas State Assessment results.
Our staff is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking needed to succeed in school and beyond.
If you have any questions about these matters or anything else concerning your child’s education, please contact your building principal.
