Parents' Right to Know Requirement (Applies to ALL Schools)
In accordance with ESEA Section 1111(h)(6) PARENTS RIGHT-TO-KNOW, the Sunflower County Consolidated School District is notifying every parent of a student in a Title I school that you have the right and may request information regarding the professional qualifications of your child’s classroom teacher.

Parent Notification of Teacher's Non-Highly Qualified Status
In addition to the information that parents may request, a school that receives Title I funds must provide each individual parent a timely notice that the parent's child has been assigned, or has been taught for four or more consecutive weeks by, a teacher who is not highly qualified.
The notice and information provided to parents must be in an understandable and uniform format and, to the extent practicable, provided in a language that the parents can understand. This applies to all teachers teaching core academic subjects in a Title I school, regardless if the school has a school wide or targeted assistance program.
The Mississippi Literacy-Based Promotion Act will ensure that every student reads at or above grade level by the end of third grade. The act is part of a statewide effort called Strong Readers=Strong Leaders to improve literacy among all school children.
