Parents' Right to Know

Date: 8/3/2023

Dear Parents,

In compliance with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act, the Dearing

Elementary School would like to inform you that you may request information about the

professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) and/ or paraprofessional(s). The

following information may be requested:

Whether the student’s teacher—

o has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and

subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;

o is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which

State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and

o is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.

Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teacher’s and/ or paraprofessional’s qualifications, please contact DES Principal Stacey Amerson at 706-986-4900.
