Parents have the "right to know" teacher qualifications as follows: approvals, endorsements, whether the teacher is state-certified, whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or provisional license, the baccalaureate degree or major area of the teacher and any other graduate degree or certification, whether children are provided the services of a paraprofessional and his/her qualifications.
