Parent Right to Know

Black Street Early Childhood Center
Right to Know Title I

Dear Parent/Guardian, 

At Black Street Early Childhood Center, we are very proud of our teachers and their ability to give your child a high-quality education. As a Title I school, we must meet federal rules related to teacher qualifications as defined in No Child Left Behind. These rules allow you to learn more about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials. We are happy to provide this information to you. At any time, you may ask:

Whether the teacher met state qualifications and certification requirements for the grade level and subject he/she is teaching, 

Whether the teacher received an emergency or conditional certificate through which state qualifications were waived, and 

What undergraduate or graduate degrees the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration. 

You may also ask whether your child receives help from a paraprofessional. If your child receives this assistance, we can provide you with information about the paraprofessional’s qualifications. 

Our staff is committed to helping your child develop the academic knowledge, social emotional skills and critical thinking he/she needs to succeed in school and beyond. That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled. 

If you have any questions about your child’s assignment to a teacher or paraprofessional, please contact me at 843-782-4516 ext. 48100.
