Federal law requires that each school district receiving Title 1 funds notify parents of each student attending any school receiving these funds that information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher(s) may be requested.

As a parent of a student attending a school receiving federal program funds, you have the right to know:

  • Is my child’s teacher licensed to teach the grades and subject(s) assigned?
  • Is my child’s teacher teaching with a provisional license, meaning the state has waived requirements for my child’s teacher?
  • What is the college major of my child’s teacher?
  • What degree or degrees does my child’s teacher hold?
  • If there are instructional aides working with my child, what are their qualifications?
  • If my child is or will be taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks this year by a teacher who is not highly qualified, will I be notified in a timely manner?

To request the state qualifications for your child’s teacher or instructional aide, please contact Carrie Smith, Human Resources at (208) 525-7500.

If you would like more information about your school, please feel free to contact the school directly.
