Parents Right to Know


Dear Parents,

You have the right to know the professional qualifications of the educators who instruct your child.  Federal law allows you to obtain certain information in a timely manner about your child’s classroom teachers and instructional assistants/paraprofessionals.  You have the right to ask for the following information about each of our child’s teachers and instructional assistants/paraprofessionals:

  1.      The teacher’s Florida certification area(s) and,

if the teacher is teaching infield, or

if the teacher is qualified infield according to the District School

Board of Pasco County.

  1. The teacher’s college degree(s) and areas of study.
  2. The teacher’s advanced college degree(s) and areas of study.
  3. The qualifications of any instructional assistant/paraprofessionals who provide services to your child.

In addition, you have the right to be provided information on your students level of achievement on assessments like FSA in Reading, English Language Arts, Mathematics and Science.  This information will be available at your child’s school and online at your child’s myStudent account.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please send a written request to your child’s school.
