Teacher Qualifications & Evaluations

Under the Every Student Succeeds Act, parents/guardians have the right to know the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teachers, including:

  • Whether a teacher has state certification for the grade levels and subjects he or she is teaching;
  • The teacher’s baccalaureate degree major and any other certifications or degrees; and
  • Whether their child receives services from paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

Parents/guardians may request their child’s classroom teacher’s professional qualifications by contacting the district office.

New York State Education Law requires school districts to post their APPR plans to their district website. Find the 2023 New Hartford CSD APPR plan on the New York State Education Department website.
