No Child Left Behind Requirement
Parents’/Guardians’ Rights Notification
Des Moines Public School Parents/Guardians have the right to learn about the following qualifications of their child’s teacher: state licensure requirements for the grade level and content areas taught, the current licensing status of your child’s teacher, and baccalaureate/graduate certification/degree. You may also request the qualifications of an instructional paraprofessional who serves your student in a Title I program or if your school operates a schoolwide Title I program. Parents/Guardians may request this information from the Office of Academics by contacting Wilma Gajdel at firstname.lastname@example.org or 515-242-7937. You may also request this information by sending a letter of request to the Office of Academics, Des Moines Public Schools, 2100 Fleur Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa 50312.
The Des Moines Public Schools ensures that parents will be notified in writing if their child has been assigned, or has been taught by a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not considered highly qualified.
