Parents' and Guardians' Rights Notification

Parents and guardians in the Marlboro County School District have the right to learn about the following qualifications of their child's teacher: state licensure requirements for the grade level and content areas taught, the current licensing status of your child's teacher, and baccalaureate/graduate certification/degree.

You may also request the qualifications of an instructional paraprofessional who serves your student in a Title I program or if your school operates a school-wide Title I program. Parents or guardians may request this information from the Federal Programs Office by calling 843.479.5721 or by sending a letter of request in care of Federal Programs, P.O. Box 947, 100 Matheson Street, Bennettsville, South Carolina, 29512.

Marlboro County School District ensures that parents or guardians will be notified in writing if their child has been assigned, or has been taught by a teacher for four or more consecutive weeks who is not considered highly qualified.

LEAs must:
Notify parents in a format that is understandable and will ensure that all parents have the opportunity to receive the information.  To the extent practicable, the notification should be provided in a language that parents may understand.  This may include, but is not limited to a LEA or school handbook, a letter mailed home, inclusion in a newsletter, posting on a website, and/or a school-wide email.
