Parents Right to Know Letter

Dear Parent:
Federal law requires that we share with you the qualifications of teachers in our school district. There are questions you may ask, including:
• Is my child’s teacher licensed to teach the grades or subjects assigned?
• Has the state waived any requirements for my child’s teacher?
• What was the college major of my child’s teacher?
• What degrees does my child’s teacher hold?
• Are there instructional aides working with my child? If so, what are their qualifications?
Let me say that all teachers have at least a bachelor’s degree in district schools, and 61 percent have advanced degrees. In addition, all teachers in this school district are fully licensed for their assignment. If you want to see the state qualification for your child’s teacher you may ask us or find it on the DPI website at:
www.dpi.state.wi.us/dpi/dlsis/tel/lisearch.html
In addition, we have 61 instructional assistants who work with children with disabilities, and they are all considered qualified for this work. If you would like more information about this school district, please feel free to call me at 920-906-6501.
Sincerely,
Michael Nault
Director of Human Resources
