No Child Left Behind- (NCLB) "Highly Qualified Teacher"
Parents certainly have a right to know who is teaching their child. On occasion, we have been asked about the professional qualifications of our teachers, such as: “Where did our teachers go to college?” “What were their majors?” or “Which graduate programs or special training have they completed?”
If you have questions like these, we have the answers. According to federal legislation – NCLB (No Child Left Behind), all schools are required to provide information on teacher qualifications to parents who ask. At DECA PREP, we work hard to recruit and hire the strongest teachers available. For example, nearly 100% meet or exceed the federal standards of being “highly qualified.” Also, many of our teachers continue each year to attend seminars, workshops and graduate classes to strengthen their teaching skills. We are proud of our teaching staff and we’ll gladly provide answers about their qualifications, training and educational background whenever asked.
