ESSA Parent’s Right-to-Know Notification 

The Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) requires school districts that receive Title I funds to support students’ academic success to notify families that they have the right to request, and receive in a timely manner, information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teachers, including, at a minimum, the following:

  1. Whether the student’s teacher

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

    2. is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and

    3. is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.

  2. Whether the child is provided services by an educational technician and, if so, their qualifications.

In addition to the information stated above, parents of students in schools that receive funds under this part may request

  1. Information on the level of achievement and academic growth of the student, if applicable and available, on each of the State academic assessments required under this part; and

  2. Timely notice that the student has been assigned, or has been taught for 4 or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who does not meet applicable State certification or licensure requirements at the grade level and subject area in which the teacher has been assigned.

St. George School staff are dedicated to the success of every child.  As a school district, we work to ensure that all staff receive the support, professional development, and training necessary to teach at the highest levels. 

If you have any questions about your child’s assignment to a teacher or education technician, please contact Principal Ryan Watts at or 207.372.6312.
