Parents Right to Know In compliance with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act, Section 1112(e)(1)(A), this notification informs parents of their right to know the qualifications of their teachers and paraprofessionals.

As a parent of a student at a Title I school in Tooele School District, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child.

Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

Whether the student’s teacher—

    1. has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
    2. is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and
    3. is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.
    4. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, his or her qualifications.
