Parents Right to Know

As a parent of a student at Cottonwood Elementary you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teacher who instructs your child. This is a requirement for all districts that receive Title I funds. Federal law allows you to request certain information about your student’s classroom teacher. The law also requires the district to give you this information in a timely manner upon request. Listed below is the information about which you have the right to ask for regarding each of your student’s classroom teachers.

 • Whether the Colorado Department of Education has licensed or endorsed your student’s teacher for the grades and subjects taught.

• Whether CDE has decided that your student’s teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances.

• The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and, if so, the subject of the degrees.

• Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraeducators provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.

 Please contact Linda Weyers at 970-249-7400 if you would like to receive any of this information.
