Parent Right to Know Notiification

July 25, 2023

Our school district is very proud of our teachers; they are ready for the school year and prepared to help your child do their best in school.  Since all our schools operate Title I programs (Schoolwide and Targeted Assistance), we are required by federal law, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA), to inform you about your child’s teachers’ qualifications.  It is your right to request the following information about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials: 

  • Whether the teacher met the state requirements from the Georgia Professional Standards Commission for certification for the grade level and subject area which they teach;  
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other temporary status through which Georgia qualifications or certification criteria have been waived;
  • What undergraduate or graduate degree(s) the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration; and
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.

Please know that our staff is committed to helping your child reach their highest academic potential throughout their school career.  That commitment includes ensuring that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled and providing quality instruction to your child.

If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teachers’ qualifications, please get in touch with your child’s principal or contact Katrina Thompson, Executive Director of Federal Programs at 770-473-2700 or katrina.thompson@clayton.k12.ga.us.

Thank you for your interest and involvement in your child’s education.
