• Manatee County Public Schools is committed to providing quality instruction for all students and does so by employing the most qualified individuals to teach and support each student in the classroom. All educators in the state of Florida are monitored to ensure that they meet certification and training requirements as mandated by law. All our teachers are certified to teach, although some of them are currently out-of-field and are working on additional areas of certification.

    You have the right to know the professional qualifications of the teachers who instruct your child.

    In an effort to ensure that all students at Robert H. Prine Elementary School are provided the highest quality education by effective and skilled teachers, we are continually working to make sure all teachers of core academic subjects meet the qualifications for state certification.

    Per Florida Statute 1012.42, when a teacher is assigned teaching duties out of the field in which the teacher is certified, the parents of all students in the class shall be notified in writing.
