‚ÄčHighly Qualified Parents Right to Know

As a parent of a student at STEM Launch, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher who instructs your child. This is a requirement for all districts that receive Title I funds. Federal law allows you to request certain information about your student’s classroom teacher. The law also requires the district to give you this information in a timely manner upon request. Listed below is the information about which you have the right to ask for regarding each of your student’s classroom teachers. 

• Whether the Colorado Department of Education has licensed or endorsed your student’s teacher for the grades and subjects taught. 

• Whether CDE has decided that your student’s teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances. 

• The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and, if so, the subject of the degrees. 

• Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraeducators provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

Please contact Amy Spruce in the Adams 12 Human Resources Office at 720-972-4058 or amy.spruce@adams12.org if you would like to receive any of this information.

Aviso De Calificaciones Del Maestro

Como padre de un estudiante en STEM Launch, usted tiene el derecho a saber las calificaciones profesionales del maestro que enseña a su hijo. Este es un requisito para todos los distritos que reciben fondos de Título I. La ley federal permite que usted pida algún tipo de información sobre el maestro de su hijo. La ley también requiere que el distrito le proporcione esta información de manera oportuna si usted la solicita.

A continuación verá la información sobre sus derechos para indagar sobre cada uno de los maestros de su hijo. 

• Preguntar si el Departamento de Educación de Colorado ha otorgado una licencia o endorso al maestro de su hijo para los grados y asignaturas enseñadas. 

• Preguntar si CDE (siglas en inglés para Departamento de Educación de Colorado) ha decidido que el maestro de su hijo pude enseñar sin tener licencia o calificación bajo las regulaciones del estado debido a circunstancias especiales. 

• Preguntar cuál es la licenciatura/estudios universitarios del maestro; si el maestro tiene estudios avanzados y, si es así, el tipo de licenciatura. 

• Preguntar si asistentes de maestros o paraeducadores similares proveen servicios para su hijo y, si es así, cuáles son sus calificaciones.
