Staff Qualifications

The Chester County School District shall notify parents that they may request, and will provide, information regarding whether professionals are highly effective, including the qualifications of the student’s teachers and paraprofessionals. This includes information about whether the student’s teacher:

  • has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
  • is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; 
  • is teaching in the field of discipline not of the certification of the teacher; and
  • is teaching alongside paraprofessionals and, if so, the paraprofessional’s qualifications [ESSA § 1112(e)(1)(A)].
