Highly Qualified Teacher Information

  • As a parent or guardian of a student in the 27J Brighton School District, 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 the district to give you this information in a timely manner upon your 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 teacher’s aides or similar paraeducators provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.
