Highly Qualified Teacher Status
The federal law, called No Child Left Behind (NCLB) requires teachers to be “highly qualified” in the subjects they teach. As parents you have the right to inquire about the qualifications and the “HQT” status of your child’s teacher. At Albert Payson Terhune Elementary School every classroom has a “Highly Qualified Teacher” who is dedicated to the success of each child. You are encouraged to continue to support your child’s education and communicate with his or her teacher on a regular basis. By partnering with your child’s teacher, together we can provide your child with the best education possible.
