As a parent, you have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of your
child’s classroom teacher in a school receiving Title I funds. The federal No
Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act requires that any local school district receiving
Title I funds must notify parents that they may ask about the professional
qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher.
These qualifications include:
the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and
subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.
the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state
undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or
certification (such as National Board Certification) held by the teacher and
the field of discipline of certification or degree.

instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications. If you are interested in this information please call 419-782-0070 or email Sheri Steyer at [email protected]
