Parent Right To Know - Title I

The federal education law put in place by the Elementary & Secondary Education Act (ESEA) requires that all parents in a Title I school be notified and given the opportunity to request information about the professional qualifications of classroom teachers and paraprofessionals instructing their child.


In accordance with the Parents Right-to-Know requirement under the Every Student Succeeds Act, every parent or guardian of a student attending a Title I school is notified of the right to request and receive in a timely manner the following:

  • Information regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s classroom teachers. The information regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s classroom teachers shall include the following:
    • if the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas taught;
    • if the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status in which the state qualifications and licensing criteria are waived;
    • the teacher’s baccalaureate degree major, graduate certification, and field of discipline; and
    • whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.
  • Notification if your student has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who does not meet the applicable state certification for licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned. 

Beaufort County School District is very proud of our teachers, and we know they are prepared to give your child a high-quality education.

Requests should be directed to your student’s school.
