All Plymouth-Canton teachers are teaching in areas in which they are certified by the State of Michigan. The federal No Child Left Behind (NCLB) law requires an even higher level of certification. At the secondary level, these new standards require teachers to possess at least a bachelor's degree and full state certification and teach only in areas in which they have a major or equivalent graduate degree or a minor and have passed the state exam in that subject.
All P-CCS elementary teachers meet the federal requirements for highly qualified teachers. Parents have a right to know the qualifications of the teachers of their children and make contact their school to get this information.
