Teacher Qualifications

Dear Parent:

It is my pleasure to inform you that you have the right to request and receive information about the professional qualifications of any of your student's teachers or paraprofessional staff. The information that you are entitled to receive, upon request, includes:

a) whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;

b) whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;

c) 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; and

d) whether your student is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

Please feel free to contact me directly at via telephone at 347-505-9101 or via e-mail at dlobato@ndchsbrooklyn.org, if you wish to receive this information or if you have any questions.
 
Sincerely,
Donna Lobato
Principal
New Dawn Charter Schools - Brooklyn
