Right to Request Information on Teacher Qualifications & Assessment Opt Out Policies

On December 10, 2015, the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) was signed into law. Section 1112(e)(1)(A) states that as a parent of a student in school receiving Title I funds, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers instructing your child and a right to know state or division policies regarding student participation in any assessments mandated by ESSA. Federal law requires the school division to provide you this information in a timely manner if you request it.

You have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

  • Whether the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status because of special circumstances.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification or degree he/she received
  • Whether paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if so, their qualifications.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact the principal at your child’s school. His or her contact information can be found at: You also have the right to request any policy, procedure, or parental right to opt students out of assessments mandated by ESSA. If you would like to receive information about this topic, please contact Valenta Wade, Manager of Data and Testing/DDOT, either by phone at (804) 780-7905, or in writing at
