Parents’ Right to Know

According to the federal law, No Child Left Behind (NCLB), parents in all Title I schools have the right to request and receive timely information on the professional qualifications of their children’s classroom teachers. This applies to parents of all children in the school, not just those whose children are receiving Title I services.

District 721 has high standards for all of its instructional staff and only employs those who meet or exceed NCLB's Highly Qualified requirements. If your child is enrolled in one of District 721's Title I schools and you require information about the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teacher(s), we will respond with the following:  

  • Whether or not the teacher has met Minnesota's licensing requirements for the grade levels and core academic subjects he or she teaches
  • Whether or not the teacher is teaching under a variance status
  • The education level and subject area of the teacher's college degree major, and any graduate degree or certificate held

(You can review these first two pieces of public information at . Follow the links to Teacher Support : Educator Licensing : View an Individual Educator's License.)

  • The education level and subject area of the teacher's college degree major, and any graduate degree or certificate held
