  • is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through which State qualification  or licensing criteria have been waived; and
  • is teaching in the field of discipline of the certification of the teacher.

2. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their qualifications.

In Georgia, notifications must occur within 30 calendar days from the start of school or upon enrollment.
