    Notice to Parents:
    As a parent of a student in the Orting School District, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner if you ask for it. Specifically, you have the right to ask for the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:
    • Whether the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction (OSPI) has licensed or qualified the teacher for the grades and subjects he or she teaches.
    • Whether OSPI has decided that the teacher can teach in a classroom without being licensed or qualified under state regulations because of special circumstances.
    • The teacher’s college major; whether the teacher has any advanced degrees, and if so, the subjects of the degrees.
    • Whether any teachers’ assistants 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 call contact Human Resources at 360-893-6500.
