Parents’ Right to Know Requirements for NCLB:

Because Amelia Elementary receives Title 1 funds, we are required to post the attached information on our school website. This is part of our compliance review audit for 2011-12.

Parents’ Right to Know:  The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act states that parents/guardians with a child in a Title 1 funded school have the right to know about the teaching qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher.

 These qualifications include:

1. Whether the teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides the child’s instruction.

2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state licensing requirements.

3. The undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification held by the teacher and the field of discipline of certification or degree.

4. Whether your child is provided services by instructional paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

You may ask for this information by contacting Cheryl Turner at Please include child’s full name, parent/guardian full name and address in your request.
