Parent's Right to Know

Parent’s Right to Know

In compliance with the requirements of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the Thomaston-Upson School District informs parents that you may request information and TUCS will provide the parents on request (and in a timely manner), information regarding the professional qualifications of the student’s classroom teacher(s), including at a minimum, the following:

  1. Whether the student’s teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
  2. Whether the student’s teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and
  3. Whether the student’s teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.  
  4. Qualifications of the paraprofessional, if paraprofessional services are provided.

If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teacher’s qualifications, please contact the school’s principal.
