Parent’s Right Statement

Dear Parent/Guardian,

As a parent of a student attending a Title I Jefferson County School, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner if you ask for it. Specifically, you have the right to ask for the following information about each of your child’s teachers:

  • Whether the Florida Department of Education has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.

  • Whether the Florida Department of Education has decided that the teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of circumstances. 

  • The teacher’s college of major, and any advanced degrees, if so, the subjects and degrees.

  • Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child, and if they do, their qualifications. 

In addition, you have the right to be provided information on your child’s level of achievement on Florida state assessments. This information will be available at your child’s school.

Parent and Family Engagement

Title I, Part A provides for substantive parental involvement at every level of the program, such as in the development and implementation of the State and local plan, and in carrying out the LEA and school improvement provisions. Studies have found that students with involved parents and families, no matter what their income or background, are more likely to earn high grades and test scores, and enroll in high-level programs; pass their classes, earn credits, and be promoted; attend high school regularly; and graduate and go on to postsecondary education. 

If you would like to be a part of the community that reviews the Parent and Family Engagement Plans, works with the school to plan effectively each year, and be a bigger part of your child’s education please contact the school principal.
