Public Notice to comply with P.L. 107-1 10, Section1111 (h) (6) (A)
The Federal No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 requires school districts that receive federal Title I funding to notify parents of their right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct their child.
As a recipient of these funds, the Lynn Public Schools will provide you with this information in a timely manner if you request it. Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child's classroom teachers.
• Whether the teacher meets the state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grades and subjects he/she teaches.
• Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or provisional status because of special circumstances.
• The teacher's college major, whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
• Whether paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if so, their qualifications.
The Lynn Public School System is committed to providing quality instruction for all students and does so by employing the most qualified individuals to teach and support each student in the classroom. If you would like information about the qualifications of your child's teachers, you may contact the principal of your child's school.
