Highly Qualified Teacher information

Central Valley Central School District receives Title 1 funds from the federal government under Section 1116 of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) regulations. A requirement of this funding is that we inform parents of their right to know their child’s teacher’s qualifications and the qualifications of any paraprofessional who may be working with him/her under the Title 1 funding at Jarvis Middle School as a targeted assistance school, and any staff member, paraprofessional and teacher, at Jarvis Middle School, as a school wide project building.

You are able to request the following information about the professional qualifications of the teachers/staff:

  • Whether the teacher has met qualifications/license/certification for grade/subject taught.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status.
  • The undergraduate major of the teacher; any graduate certification or degree and area in which it was awarded.
  • Whether the child is provided services from paraprofessionals and if so, their qualifications.

If you wish to receive this information, please sign the attached request and return to our office. We will determine if there are any Title 1 staff working with your child and mail back a response with the details that you have requested. If you have any questions, please feel free to call your school principal:

  • Harry M. Fisher Elementary School at 315-866- 4851
  • Barringer Road Elementary School at 315-894- 8420
  • Gregory B. Jarvis Middle School at 315-866-2620

You may download and print a PDF of this information as letter from each school principal. The PDF also includes a tear-away form to request information about your child’s teacher.
