Right to Know Letter

The federal law defines a Highly Qualified teacher as one who is: fully certified and/or licensed by the state; holds at least a bachelor’s degree from a four-year institution; and demonstrates competence in each core academic subject area the teacher is assigned to teach. The PCSB provides support for this teacher through the development of a plan to complete these requirements by the end of the school year.
Polk County School District must inform parents attending a Title I school of their right to request information about the professional qualifications of both the teachers and the paraprofessionals who teach and work with their children.
