This information regarding the professional qualifications of your child's classroom teachers including, at a minimum the following:

                1. Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade
                     levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
                2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status
                    through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.
                3. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification
                    or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
                4. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.
