Elementary and Secondary Education Act Information

Districts receiving federal funds under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) are required to notify parents and guardians of their right to request and receive information on the professional qualifications of their child’s teacher(s). Specifically, you have the right to request the following:

  • Whether your child’s teacher has met state qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas in which he or she teaches.

  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived.

  • Whether your child’s teacher is teaching in the field if the discipline of the certification of the teacher.

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

All teachers in the School District of Janesville have a bachelor’s degree and a large percentage have advanced degrees. In addition, all paraprofessionals meet ESEA qualifications. You can check on the state certification of your child’s teacher by accessing the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction website (user name “view” password “1234567”) at https://dpi.wi.gov/tepdl/license-lookup/public-search or by contacting Human Resources at 608-743-5024.
