Parents Right to Know Requirement

Any parent can request information about any teacher of their child. Under federal law, parents have the right to know:  

  • whether a teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction; 
  • whether a teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; 
  • the baccalaureate degree major of a teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree;

Teacher qualifications can be accessed at Educator Qualification.
