Parents Right to Know

USD 247 Public Schools operates under the Title I federal guidelines as provided under the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) of 2015. One of the key provisions of this federal plan is to make sure schools have the most highly qualified teachers in the classrooms possible. Should you wish to receive information about the qualifications of your child’s classroom teachers, ESSA allows you to ask your school to provide the following information:

  • Whether your child’s teacher has met state qualifications and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subjects taught;
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency / other provisional license or whether licensing criteria have been waived;
  • The teacher’s degree major and any other graduate certification or degree held; and, Whether the child is provided services by a paraprofessional and, if so, their qualifications.

If you would like to receive any of this information, please feel free to submit your request to your school principal in writing so he/she can follow up with your request.

You will be receiving your child’s yearly spring state assessment scores when they become available. District and Individual school report cards are available at:

Please contact your child’s school if you would like to request further information about your child’s assessment scores or school/district information.
