Parent Right to Know

The information that you have a right to request on your child's teacher is:

• Whether the teacher has met New Hampshire qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subjects the teacher is teaching;

• Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing has been waived;

• The baccalaureate degree major of certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree;

• Whether the child is provided services by a paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.
