Parents' Right to Know

Sage International receives Title I funding and is included under the regulations of the “Every Student Succeeds Act” (ESSA) that was signed into law in December 2015.

ESSA requires:
Increased accountability for states and school districts.
Greater choice for parents, especially those in low performing schools.
Greater flexibility for state and local education agencies in the use of federal funding.

Under ESSA, parents have a right to request professional qualifications of their children’s teacher(s) or paraprofessionals(s). You have the right to ask for the following information about your children’s classroom teachers or paraprofessionals:

* Whether Idaho has licensed the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.
* Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which Idaho licensing criteria have been waived.
* The teacher’s baccalaureate degree major and whether the teacher has any advance degrees, and if so, the subject of the degrees.
* Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

If you would like to receive specific information about your child’s teacher or paraprofessional, please contact your director.

Sage International is fully committed to the success of your child. We appreciate your partnership in our efforts to provide the best education for your child.
