Teacher Qualification
Notification of Right to Request Teacher Qualifications

Dear Parent or Guardian:

The educators in the Danville Schools are committed to providing a quality instructional program for your child. This letter is just one of the ways of keeping you informed of the educational commitment of our schools and our district.

Our district receives federal funds for Title I programs in our elementary schools as part of the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB). Under NCLB, you have the right to request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s teacher(s) in these schools. If you request this information, the district will provide you with the following:

1. Whether the teacher has met the state requirements for licensure and certification for the grade levels and subject matters 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 college major and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree; and

4. Whether your child is provided services by paraeducators, and if so, their qualifications.

If you would like to request this information, please contact Teresa Osbourn by phone at 238-1300 or by email at teresa.osbourn@danville.kyschools.us. Please include your child’s name, the name of the school your child attends, the name of your child’s teacher(s) and an address or email address where the information may be sent. Thank you for your interest and involvement in your child’s education.

Sincerely,

Keith Look, Ed.D.
Superintendent
