Parents Right to Know: Teacher Qualifications

  • Christina School District believes all students should be taught by highly qualified staff in all of our schools.  Parents have a right to know if their child's teacher meets these standards.  Federal Law ensures this right for parents who have children in schools that receive funds from the federal Title I program.  Parents who are interested in learning about any of the following information may submit a request and the information will be sent to them:
    • Whether the teacher has met state qualifying and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher is teaching;
    • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
    • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, including the field of discipline of the certification degree; and
    • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
    For more information, please contact the Delaware Department of Education or the Christina School District Title I Office.
