PARENTS RIGHT TO KNOW | PDF
Excerpt: The 2001 reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act makes it clearer than ever that parents are the key stakeholders in their children's education. The No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) imposes numerous new mandates requiring states, districts and schools to answer to parents for a failure to improve schools. NCLB brought forth a whole new provision known as "Parents Right to Know". This provision requires Natchitoches Parish School Board to notify parents of all children in Title I schools that they have the right to request and receive timely information on the professional qualifications of their children's classroom teachers. It must be emphasized that this requirement applies to all children in the school - whether or not they receive identifiable Title I services – and it applies to all Title I schools.
