Right to Know
WOLCS recognizes parents’ / guardians’ right to information about teaching and learning for their children. Parents / guardians may request and WOLCS will provide information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher, including whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction as well as the baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
At their request parents / guardians may also be informed of whether their child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, what qualifications the paraprofessional has. If students are taught by a teacher who is not highly qualified, WOLCS will notify the parents / guardians of all such students. Finally, parents / guardians also have a right to information concerning their child’s level of achievement in the subjects assessed on the PSSA.
