At Excel Academy Public School (“EAPS”), we are very proud of our teachers. We believe they are prepared to help your child do their best in school each day. As a Title I school, we are required by federal law, the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (“ESEA”), to let you know about your child’s teachers’ qualifications. It is your right to request the following information about your child’s teachers’ training and credentials:

  • Whether the teacher met the State qualifications for the grade level and subject area in which the teacher provides instruction;
  • Whether the teacher is teaching under an emergency or other professional status that the State has waived;
  • What undergraduate or graduate degree(s) the teacher holds, including graduate certificates and additional degrees, and major(s) or area(s) of concentration; and,
  • Whether your child is provided services by paraprofessionals, and if so, their qualifications.

Please know that our staff is committed to helping your child reach his or her highest academic potential throughout their school career. That commitment includes making sure that all of our teachers and paraprofessionals are highly skilled and are providing quality instruction to your child.

If you wish to request information concerning your child’s teachers’ qualifications, please contact Excel Academy PS via telephone at 202-373-0097 or via electronic mail at

Thank you for your interest and involvement in your child’s education.
