The Mad River School District is pleased to notify all of our parents that 100% of our core teachers meet the specific qualifications outlined in NCLB for "highly qualified", 100% of instructional paraprofessional staff also meets the "highly qualified" standards.
The No Child Left Behind Act of 2001 (NCLB) provides for all public schools to be staffed by highly qualified teachers. The Mad River School District has been working diligently to ensure that all core teachers meet the definition of a "highly qualified teacher". A Highly Qualified teacher holds a minimum of a bachelor's degree, has obtained full state certification or licensure, and has demonstrated subject area competence in each of the academic subjects in which he or she teaches.
As a parent/guardian of a student in the Mad River School District, under the No Child Left Behind Act of 2001, you have a right to know the professional qualifications of teachers and paraprofessionals who instruct your child. If you would like to receive more information, please contact Ms. Necia Nicholas, Assistant Superintendent, 801 Old Harshman Rd., Riverside, OH, or by telephone at (937) 259-6602, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
