Annual Right to Know

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We are writing in compliance with provisions of the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 to inform you that,
because your child’s school receives Title I federal funding, you have the right to request information
regarding the professional qualification of your child’s classroom teacher(s). Specifically included is your
right to know the following:

  • Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
  • The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and field of discipline of the certification or degree; and
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualification.

Should you wish to exercise your right to obtain the above information about your child’s teacher, please contact the office of the Superintendent of Schools in writing at the following address to make your request.

Mr. D. Joseph Corr, Superintendent
North Colonie Central Schools
91 Fiddlers Lane
Latham, New York 12110

Should you have any questions concerning the above please do not hesitate to call, (518) 785-8591.
