No Child Left Behind
Under NCLB, parents have a right to know the professional qualifications of their children’s teacher(s). It is the right of a parent to ask for the following information about each of his/her child’s classroom teachers:
1. Whether the State of Iowa has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.
2. Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional status for which the State of Iowa licensing criteria have been waived.
3. The teacher’s college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees and, if so, the subject of the degrees.
4. Under Title I legislation, Title I teachers are required to have their reading endorsements. Our K-5 reading teachers fulfill this requirement.
If any parent or guardian would like information in these areas regarding his/her child’s teacher, he/she should contact the District Office at 641-755-4144. Panorama Schools is committed to the success of all children and appreciates partnerships in these efforts.
