    Dear Parents:



    As a parent of a student at Shirley D. Simmons Middle School, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child/ren.  Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teacher:


    ·         Whether the Mississippi Department of Education has licensed the teacher for the grades and subject he or she teaches.


    ·         Whether the Mississippi Department of Education has decided that the teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed under state regulations because of special circumstances.


    ·         The teacher’s college major and whether the teacher has any advanced degrees.


    ·         Whether any teacher’s aides or assistants provide services and, if so, their qualifications.


    If you would like to receive any of this information, please send a written request to my attention at the address above.
