Teacher Certification Requests

Peaster Elementary receives funds for federal programs that are part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESSA) as amended in 2015. Throughout the school year, we will continue to provide you with important information about this law and your child’s education. 

You have the right to request information about the professional qualifications of your child’s teacher(s) or paraprofessionals(s). If you request this information, the district or school will provide you with the following as soon as possible:
  1. Whether the student’s teacher has met State qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
  2. Whether the student’s teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
  3. Whether the student’s teacher is teaching in a field of discipline of the certification of the teacher; and
  4. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and if so, their qualifications.
If you would like to request information about your child’s teacher(s) or paraprofessional(s), please contact the Principal at your child’s school.
