  • Whether the teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualifications or licensing criteria have been waived.
  • 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
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so their qualifications.

This information is to be collected and disseminated in a manner that protects the privacy of individuals. For additional information regarding this requirement, see Section 111(h)(6) of the NCLB legislation at http:/
