Parents’ Right to Know


In compliance with the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act, the Thomson-McDuffie Middle School would like to inform you that you may request information about the professional qualifications of your student’s teacher(s) and/ or paraprofessional(s). The following information may be requested:

  •         Whether the student’s teacher—

o   has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction;

o   is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification or licensing criteria have been waived; and

o   is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.


  •         Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.


If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teacher’s and/ or paraprofessional’s qualifications, please contact Principal Renee Askew, at 706-986-4300.
