As a parent of a student in a Meriwether County School, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of your child's teacher. Federal Law allows you to inquire and receive this information in a timely manner. You may ask:
Whether the Georgia Department of Education has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he/she teaches.
Whether the Georgia Department of Education has decided that the 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 degree.
Whether any teacher's aides or similar paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.
If you have questions, please contact William Edgar at 706.672.4297 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
