As we transition to the requirements of the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA), notifying parents of a school designation status for the 2017-2018 school year has changed. Because Georgia’s 2015 Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) Flexibility Waiver expired, there is no longer a federal requirement for the notification to parents regarding Priority, Focus, and Reward School designations. Parent notification for school designation, Flexible Learning Program, and Public School Choice in regards to Priority and Focus Schools are not required by the ESSA; therefore, these templates will not be updated for the 2017-2018 school year.

Parent Notifications

Notice to Parents of English Learners ​

Previously stated in both Title I and Title III under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA), the overarching parent and family engagement law regarding notices to parents of English Learners (ELs) receiving supplemental language support is now under Title I, Part A, Section 1112(e)(3) in the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). Local educational agencies (LEAs) are required to send notification, in a language and format appropriate for the reader, to parents of ELs who have been selected to participate in the LEA’s Title III or Title I supplemental language program. This notice also permits the parent to waive participation in the Title-funded services. To download templates, visit the Parents of English Learners page. ​​


Professional Qualifications

All schools must provide notification to all parents regarding their right to request teacher and paraprofessional qualifications. This parent right-to-know notification must be shared at the start of the school year. For a sample parent notification template, visit the Professional Qualifications webpage.  

Distribution Checklist

Title I, Part A, Section 1116 of the ESSA requires that each school served under Title I, Part A, distribute to parents and family members of participating children a written district-level and school-level parent and family engagement policy and school-parent compacts.​
