Parents Rights To Know
Title I Annual Notification USD 214 Ulysses 2016-2017
This notification is provided to inform you of your right to request the following specific information concerning the school and teachers:
Parents may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s/children’s classroom teachers and paraprofessionals.
Professional qualifications include:
• Whether or not the teacher has met Kansas licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas being taught;
• The baccalaureate degree and any other graduate certification or degree and the field of discipline of both;
• If services are provided by paraprofessionals, their qualifications;
• If the teacher is teaching under an emergency or professional waiver.
All teachers at Hickok Elementary School meet the above criteria. The majority of our teaching staff are fully licensed and have completed a baccalaureate degree or higher. We do have some teachers who are teaching under an emergency or provisional waiver. These teachers are working to complete teacher education programs in order to obtain licensure through their respective Universities. The paraprofessional(s), who work under the direction of the Title I and classroom teachers, meet required qualifications for the position.
Schools receiving Title I funds are required to make a Parent-School Compact. Forms are available during enrollment or in the office of each building. Every child in these buildings must have a signed Parent-School Compact on file.
If you have questions or would like to request further information, please feel free to contact Chad Krug, Assistant Superintendent at 620-356-3655.
