Parental Right to Information About Teachers

The federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act allows parents in Title I schools to request certain information about their child’s teachers. The information that you have a right to request on your child’s teacher is:

  1. whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subjects the teacher is teaching.
  2. whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing has been waived.
  3. the baccalaureate degree major of certification or degree held by the teacher and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
  4. whether the child is provided services by a teaching assistant and, if so, their qualifications.

We are extremely proud of our teachers and teacher assistants, and are happy to provide you any of the above information pertaining to your child’s teacher. If you have such a request, please call us at 703-228-6000 and ask for the information in which you are interested.
