Parents’ Right to Know

Parents’ Right to Know – Teacher Qualifications
M.S.D. of Perry Township believes all students should be taught by highly qualified staff in all of our schools.  Parents have a right to know if their child’s teacher meets these standards.  This information regarding the professional qualifications of your student’s classroom teachers includes the following:

  • If the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade level and subject areas taught;
  • If  the teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary  in which Indiana qualifications and licensing criteria are waived;
  • The teacher’s baccalaureate degree major , graduate certification, and field of discipline; and
  • Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and  if so, their qualifications.

If at any time your student has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher that is not highly qualified, you will be notified by the school of this information.
