    Date: August 31, 2023


    Dear Parents,

    In compliance with the requirements of the Every Students Succeeds Act, Hope-Hill Elementary School would like to inform you that you may request information about the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) and/ or paraprofessional(s). The following information may be requested:

    • 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; and
      • is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.
    • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

    If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teacher’s and/ or paraprofessional’s qualifications, please contact me, Keisha Gibbons, at  404-802-7451


    Kind Regards,

    Keisha Gibbons
