Right to Review Teacher Qualifications




    Deer Valley District


    August 2015


    As a parent of a student at a Title I school, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner if you ask for it. Specifically, you have the right to ask for the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

    nWhether ADE has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.

    nWhether ADE has decided that the teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances.

    nThe teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees and, if so, the subject of the degrees.

    nWhether any teachers’ aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

    If you would like to receive any of this information, please call our school office at 602-467-5904.
