Right to Request Professional Qualifications of Teachers/Paraprofessionals

  • Whether the teacher has met Maine certification criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under conditional or other provisional status through which Maine certification criteria have been waived;
  • The teacher's college major and field of discipline for any advanced degrees held; and
  • Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals such as educational technicians and, if so, what their qualifications are.
