Parent Right to Know

Each year, as required by law, schools that receive Title I funds must notify parents/guardians that they may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers.  This information will be provided by the school in a timely manner.  At a minimum this includes the following:

  • whether the teacher meets the New Hampshire requirements for the grade level(s) and subject areas taught

  • whether the teacher is teaching under emergency status and that the Department of Education has temporarily waived their certification requirement

  • the teacher’s degrees and any other graduate certifications held by the teacher and the field of discipline of the certification or degree

  • whether the child is provided services by a paraprofessional and, if so, their qualifications

Each Title I school must also provide parents with the following information:

  • the level of achievement their child has achieved on all state assessments

  • timely notice if a child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not qualified

All information provided to parents must be clearly written and provided in a language the parent is able to understand.  Please contact your school principal or Linda Perrow, grant writer/project manager, at 603.569.0221 if you have any questions regarding your Right to Know or if you would like to request information.
