Parents play vital roles in our students' journeys to receiving and achieving excellence in their education. In the City of Baker School System, we believe it's our job to help our parents fulfill their roles in the educational process of their children. With the assistance of the Parent Connection (see link at bottom of this page), PTO and other numerous programs especially formed for parents, guardians and caretakers, they can learn how to get involved, prepare for their child's college education, support their school and gain access to the information all parents need to help their children be successful each school day.
Parents’ Right-To-Know Provisions
As a parent or guardian of a child attending a school receiving Title I Part A funds, the parent has the right to know the professional qualifications of his/her child’s teacher(s). The 2001 No Child Left Behind Act states that parents have the right to request and receive timely information on the professional qualifications of their child’s classroom teacher(s) and paraprofessional(s). If a child’s teacher is not highly qualified (not certified in the area in which he or she is teaching), the parent should receive written notification.
