Right to Know
You have the right to know about teaching qualifications of your child's classroom teacher in a school receiving Title 1 funds. The federal "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) Act requires that any local school district receiving Title 1 funds must notify parents that they may ask about the professional qualifications of their child's classroom teacher.
- Whether the
teacher has met the Ohio teacher licensing criteria for the grade level
and subject areas in which the teacher provides your child instruction.
- Whether the
teacher is teaching under emergency or temporary status that waives state
undergraduate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate degree or

We are pleased to report that 100% of teachers in the Rossford EVSD are considered “highly qualified” by the Ohio Department of Education.
District administrators invite comments from the public regarding the services listed below:
Title I, Helping Disadvantaged Children Meet High Standards monies provide supplemental instruction in reading, language arts and mathematics to students at Rossford Elementary School and Rossford Junior-Senior High School. Funds support staff for services, such as academic intervention, and are also used for instructional supplies.
Title II A, Teacher and
Principal Quality, provides monies to “increase student achievement by elevating teacher and principal quality through recruitment, hiring and retention strategies.”
