Teacher Qualifications Notice: 

Dear Parents & Guardians:

As a parent of a student at Rustburg Elementary, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for certain information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires us to give you this information in a timely manner, upon your request. Specifically, you have the right to request the following information about each of your child’s classroom teachers:

 ·       Whether the teacher has met state qualifications 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 because of special circumstances.

 ·       Whether the teacher is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification or degree he/she received.

 ·       Whether paraprofessionals provide services to your child and, if so, their qualifications.

Parents of students in Title I schools also have a right to know about state and division policies regarding participation in any assessments mandated by ESSA, including policy, procedure, or parental right to opt students out of such assessments. 

 

If you would like to receive any of this information, please contact the principal, Vicky White, at 434.332.5215 or in writing at 25 Webb’s Way, Rustburg, VA 24588.

Thank you for your support!


2022-2023 Growth Assessments Family Communication:

For the 2022-2023 school year, students in Virginia public schools will take growth assessments in grades 3-8 reading and mathematics once in the fall and once in the winter (mid-year). The fall and winter growth assessments will focus primarily on content from the student’s current grade level. The assessment has been configured so that the student might be administered some items from below or above the current grade level depending on the student’s responses to the on-grade-level content items. The spring assessment will continue to be the regularly occurring Standards of Learning (SOL) test.

The growth assessment will not include a passing/failing score, but individual student score reports will be provided with details of how students performed on each test item to identify skills already learned as well as the skills they may need additional help with during the school year. 

After completion of testing, results will be shared with you. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s teacher. Thank you for your continued support!
