The Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires school districts that receive federal Title l funding to notify parents of their right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct their child.
As a recipient of these funds, Garnet Valley School District will provide you with this information in a timely manner if you request it. Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child's classroom teachers:
Whether the teacher meets Pennsylvania qualifications and licensing criteria for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.
Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status through which Pennsylvania licensing criteria have been waived.
The teacher's college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
Garnet Valley School District is committed to providing quality instruction for all students and does so by employing the most qualified individuals to teach each student in the classroom. If you would like to receive any of the information listed above for your child's teacher, please contact the office where your child attends school.
