Dear Parent:/Guardian:

In accordance with the ESEA Section 1111 (h) (6) PARENTS-RIGHT-TO-KNOW, the Centralia City Schools Districts, #135 is notifying every parent of a student in a Title I school that you have the right and may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers including the following:

  1. Whether the teacher has met State qualifications and licensing criteria

       for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.

  1. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status

       through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

  1. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
  2. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If at any time your child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher not highly qualified, the school will notify you.

All teachers at Centralia City Schools are highly qualified teachers.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your district superintendent at 532-1907.
