Parents' Right to Know

2021-22 School Year

Dear Parent or Guardian:

The Lee’s Summit School District is required to inform you of certain information that you, according to the “Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 (ESSA), have the right to know.

Upon your request, our district is required to provide to you in a timely manner, the following information:

  • 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 through which the state qualifications or licensing criteria have been waived.

  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

  • What baccalaureate degree major the teacher has and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification.

In addition to the information that parents may request, districts must provide to each individual parent:

  • Information on the achievement level of the parent’s child in each of the state academic assessments as required under this part; and

  • Timely notice that the parent’s child has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.

Please do not hesitate to contact your Title IA building with any questions.
