One looks back with
appreciation to the brilliant
teachers, but with gratitude

necessary raw material, but
warmth is a vital element
for the growing plant and
for the soul of the child.

The Elementary and Secondary Education Assistance Act of 1965 (ESEA)[Section 1111 (6)(A)]
These regulations allow you to learn more about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials. We are happy to provide this
information to you. At any time, you may ask:
Whether the teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject he/she is teaching,
Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived, and
What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and
major(s) or area(s) of concentration. You may also ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional. If your
child receives this assistance, we can provide you with information about the paraprofessional’s qualifications.
Our staff is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge and critical thinking he/she needs to succeed
in school and beyond. That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled.
