Parent’s Right to Know

By law, LEAs are required to notify parents that they may request information regarding the teacher's or paraprofessional's professional qualifications, including the following:
• Whether the teacher/paraprofessional has met the South Carolina certification requirements for the grade level and subject area(s) in which the teacher provides instruction;
• Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other provisional status through which South Carolina qualifications or certification criteria have been waived;
• The college major and any graduate certification or degree held by the teacher;
• Whether the student is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.
