Dear Parents:                                                                                        

As a parent of a student at Manassa Elementary, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher who instructs your child. This is a requirement for all districts that receive Title I funds. Federal law allows you to request certain information about your student’s classroom teacher.  The law also requires the district to give you this information in a timely manner upon request. Listed below is the information about which you have the right to ask for regarding each of your student’s classroom teachers. 

·         Whether the Colorado Department of Education (CDE) has licensed or endorsed your student’s teacher for the grades and subjects taught.

·         Whether CDE has decided that your student’s teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances.

·         The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and, if so, the subject of the degrees.

·         Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraeducators provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications. 

Please contact Mr. Denny Fringer at 843-5277 if you would like to receive any of this information.
