Parents' Right-to-Know

  • In accordance with the ESEA Section 1111(h)(6) PARENTS RIGHT-TO-KNOW, the Leyden High School District 212 is notifying every parent that you have the right and may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher. This information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers including, at a minimum, the following:

    1. Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.

    2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

    3. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.

    4. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

    You may also view certification information on any teacher at the Illinois State Board of Education Web site www.isbe.net.

    If at any time your child has been taught in a Title I funded class for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher not highly qualified, the school will notify you. If you have questions, please feel free to contact Dr. Beth S. Concannon, Assistant Superintendent, at 847.451.3021.
