As a parent/guardian of a Hawaii Department of Education student, you
have the right to know the professional qualifications of the
classroom teacher(s) and the educational assistant(s) who instruct
your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information
about your child’s classroom teacher(s) and educational assistant(s)
and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner upon
request. You have the right to ask for the following information about
each of your child’s classroom teacher(s).
1. Whether the teacher has met licensing criteria and has earned the
designation of Highly Qualified for the grade levels and subject areas
in which he/she teaches. Core academic subjects
• English/language arts
• Foreign Languages
• Civics and Government
2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other
provisional status through which State qualification or licensing
criteria have been waived.
3. The teacher’s college major, whether the teacher has any advanced
degrees and, if so, the subject of the degrees; and
4. Whether any teachers’ aides or similar paraprofessionals provide
services to your child and, if they do, their qualifications.
If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact
