Highly Qualified Teacher Statement of Assurance
TEACHER QUALIFICATIONS—Parental Right to Know
Parents and Guardians in the Hamburg Community School District have the right to learn about the following qualifications of their child’s teacher: state licensure requirements for the grade level and content areas taught; the current licensing status of your child’s teacher; and baccalaureate/graduate certification/degree.
Statement of Assurance Related to Highly Qualified Teacher Assignments:
If, due to circumstances out of the districts control, a substitute or replacement teacher will be assigned to your students classroom or class for a period of time of four or more consecutive weeks and that teacher is not highly qualified in accordance with federal and state laws then the district will notify you of the situation. It is the intention of Hamburg Community School District to provide ‘highly qualified’ teachers in all areas to the best of the districts ability throughout the school year.
Parents or guardians may request this information from the Office of the Superintendent by calling 382-2017 or sending a letter of request to Office of the Superintendent, 309 S Street, Hamburg, Iowa 51640.
