Elementary and Secondary Education Act
According to the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, previously known as the No Child Left Behind Act, districts having Title I programs must annually notify parents of their right to request information regarding professional and paraprofessional qualifications in the building. Parents may request professional and paraprofessional qualifications of Jackson Center Schools personnel criteria for your child’s grade level and subject area being taught including:
-if the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas in which they are teaching.
-if the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status in which Ohio qualifications or licensing criteria are currently being waived.
-the teacher’s baccalaureate degree major, graduate certification, and field of discipline.
-whether the student is provided services by a paraprofessional, and if so, his/her qualifications.
