District Complaints

The Governing Board believes that the quality of the educational program can improve when the district listens to concerns, considers differences of opinion, and resolves disagreements through an established, objective process.The Board encourages concerned citizens to resolve problems early and informally whenever possible. If a problem remains unresolved, a formal complaint may be submitted in accordance with appropriate district procedures. Complaints will be investigated and every attempt will be made to resolve the issue at the school level. If the complaint cannot be resolved, appeals may be made to a district level administrator, Superintendent and the Governing Board.
