• Get Involved!

    Studies have indicated that children whose parents and/or other significant adults share in their formal education tend to do better in school. Some benefits that have been identified that measure parental involvement in education include:

    • Higher grades and test scores
    • Long term academic achievement
    • Positive attitudes and behavior
    • More successful programs
    • More effective schools

    Please contact your child's school to learn how you can become more involved in the educational process. A copy of the district's Parent Involvement Plan can be found here.

    Parents' Right to Know

    Under the provisions of the Every Student Succeeds Act {Title I Section 1111 (h)(6)} and Board of Education policy, the parent/guardian of each student attending a school in the system may request information regarding the professional qualifications of the student's classroom teachers, including, at a minimum, the following:

    • Whether the teacher has met State certification for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
    • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which certification has been waived.
    • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
    •  If the child receives services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

    Also, schools will provide timely notice to parents/guardians that their student has been assigned to or is being taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not certified in the grade level or content area assigned for instruction.  More information can be found here.
