Teacher Qualifications

You have the right to know about the qualifications of your child’s teacher(s).  

You may request information about these qualifications, including: 


  • Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade levels and subject areas 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 baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree. For this information, please contact the district Human Resources Specialist at (206) 780-1056.

BISD is required to provide annual notice of the right to know the qualifications of teachers.
