Parents Right to Know


As a parent of a student at Pierce County Middle 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 classroom teachers:

 Whether the teacher has met the Georgia Professional Standards Commission requirements for certification for the grade level and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
 Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status through which Georgia qualifications or certification criteria have been waived;
 The college major and any graduate certification or degree held by the teacher;
 Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications
In addition to the information that parents may request, a school shall provide to each individual parent:
a) information on the level of achievement of the parent's child in each of the State academic assessments; and
b) Timely notice that the parent's child has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who is not highly qualified.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please call Yvette Newton, Title IIA Coordinator, at the Pierce County Board of Education at 912-449-2044.


Información de padres

Maestros y asistentes ALTAMENTE CALIFICADOS

Como padre de un estudiante de la Pierce County Middle School, usted tiene el derecho de conocer las calificaciones profesionales de los maestros que enseñan a su hijo. La ley federal le permite pedir cierta información sobre los maestros de su hijo y exige que le demos esta información de manera oportuna si usted lo solicita. Específicamente, usted tiene el derecho de pedir la siguiente información acerca de cada uno de los maestros de su hijo:

• Si el maestro ha cumplido con los requisitos de la Comisión de Normas Profesionales de Georgia para la certificación para el nivel de grado y materias en las que el maestro provee instrucción;
• Si el maestro está enseñando bajo una emergencia u otro estado provisional a través del cual se ha renunciado a las calificaciones Georgia o criterios de certificación;
• La principal universidad y cualquier certificación o título obtenido por el maestro;
• Si el estudiante recibe servicios de paraprofesionales, y si es así, sus calificaciones
Además de la información que los padres pueden solicitar, la escuela debe proveer a cada uno de los padres individualmente:
a) información sobre el nivel de éxito de los niños a los padres en cada uno de las evaluaciones académicas estatales y,
b) aviso oportuno a los padres de que los niños han sido asignado, o ha sido enseñado por cuatro o más semanas consecutivas por un maestro que no está altamente calificado
