The Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 gives parents/guardians the right to get information about professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers. Upon request, the superintendent will give parents/guardians the following information about their child’s teacher:
- Whether the teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
- Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional teaching certificate.
- The graduate certification or degrees held by the teacher and field of discipline. We will also, upon request, tell parents/guardians whether their child is being provided services by a paraprofessional and the qualification of such para.
Nebraska Education Profile (school data)
The NEP (Nebraska Education Profile) is the initial transformation of data from the State of the Schools Report and is intended to help inform the public and school officials about school district performance. The NEP is also intended to inform parents, community leaders, and policymakers about our education system and to provide data needed for sound decision making by education leaders. The NEP will continue to grow and change as data is added to the system. As always your local school staff will be able to explain the data particular to your school and district.
