State Annual Accountability Report

Florida Statue 1012.42- Notification of Out of Field Teachers

All educators in Florida are monitored to ensure they meet certification and training requirements as mandated by law. Per Florida Statute 1012.42, when a teacher is assigned teaching duties out of the field in which the teacher is certified, the parents of all students in the class shall be notified in writing. Per the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB), we are also required to notify parents when their child has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher not highly qualified for that class.

All of our teachers are certified to teach, although some of them are currently out-of-field and/or not highly qualified (HQ) and are working on additional areas of certification. You have the right to know the professional qualifications of the teachers or paraprofessionals who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s teachers and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner if you ask for it. If you would like more information, please contact the school at 813.985.3223
