The Board believes that complaints are handled best when resolved as close to their origins as possible. School personnel should be given every opportunity to consider the issues and to resolve the problem. Therefore, please follow the proper channeling of complaints as listed below.
The Teacher: If you have a concern or compliant about something in the classroom, you are asked to meet with the teacher first.
The Principal: If your concern is about general school operations and policies, or if meeting with a teacher is either inappropriate or does not help, then you are encouraged to meet with the school principal.
The Superintendent: If your concern involves school district operations generally, or if the teacher and principal are not able to resolve your problem, please contact the Superintendent for an appointment.
The Board of Education: If your concern is directly related to Board actions or operations, you may address the Board directly or contact the Superintendent. If you have a complaint and you have made an attempt to solve the matter at other levels and have not been satisfied with the response(s), your complaint may be brought to the attention of the Board.
