We are extremely proud of the expertise and experience of our staff. OCS consistently has high percentages of teachers who meet the federal government's Highly Qualified Teacher requirements and who hold National Board Teacher Certification.  We respect parents' rights to know about the qualification of their children's teacher and welcome inquiries about teacher credentials.  Please contact Richard Graviss, Personnel Director, at 502-241-3500 for additional information. 

According to Title I Parent/Student rights, parents may request information regarding the professional qualifications of their child’s teachers such as:

  • whether the teacher met the state requirements for licensure and certification for the grade levels and subject matters in which the teacher provides instruction;
  • whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which state qualification or licensing criteria have been waived;
  • the college major and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher and the field of discipline of the certification or degree; and
  • whether the child is provided service by paraeducators, and if so, their qualifications

ESS

Appeal Process for Selection or Non-Selection of Students 

A parent who disagrees with the selection or non-selection of a student for extended school services shall first contact the child’s teacher. After careful review of the child’s performance level, an effort shall be made to reach a cooperative agreement regarding the need for extended school services.

If the parent is not satisfied with the decision, the parent may contact the principal. The principal will collect information from the parent and the teacher. In some instances, it might be appropriate to include the student in either of the discussion groups. The principal shall make the final determination for referral for extended school services.
