- The Undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, including the field of discipline of the certification or degree
You may also request the qualifications of an instructional paraprofessional who serves your student in a Title I program or if your school operates a school-wide Title I program.
Parents and Guardians may request this information from the Office of the Superintendent by calling (515) 382-2783 or sending a letter to the request of the Office of the Superintendent, 1035 15th Street, Nevada, Iowa 50201.
When any child is provided a substitute teacher for four consecutive weeks in a school that receives Title I funds and the substitute does not meet the highly qualified teacher definition, the school must notify parents of this situation. The Nevada Community School District ensures that parents will be notified in writing if their child has been assigned, or has been taught by a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks.
