Parent Right to Know

The Riverside Elementary School receives Title I funding and is included under the regulations of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA).  ESSA provides increased accountability for states and school district, greater choice for parents-especially those in low performing schools, and greater flexibility for state and local education agencies in the use of federal funding.

Under ESSA, parents have the right to request the professional qualifications of their child's teacher and or paraprofessional(s).  Information parents may request may include:

  • Grades and subjects the teacher is licensed for in the state of Pennsylvania
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status, for which PA licensing criteria may have been waived
  • The teacher's baccalaureate degree major and/or additional advanced degrees/subjects
  • Qualifications of the child's paraprofessionals, if applicable
Parents who would like to receive specific information about their child's teacher or paraprofessional should contact the building principal in which the child attends.
