Most complaints can be resolved by informal discussions between the complainant and the staff members. Should the matter not be resolved, the principal or administrator
shall attempt to resolve the issue through a conference with the complainant.
In the event that resolution is not achieved the Community Resolution Center should be contacted. The Community Resolution Center will work with the administrator and the complainant to find a resolution.
The following procedures apply to the processing of a complaint, which cannot be resolved in the manner described above.
The individual or group of individuals shall submit a written explanatory statement (KE-E – Public Concern and Complaint Form) to the immediate supervisor of the District employee(s) involved where a problem has occurred.
Within 10 school days after the written statement is received the immediate supervisor will notify the complainant that the complaint has been received and by when the review will be completed. Within 30 school days, the immediate supervisor shall complete a review of the matter, shall request a written response from the employee(s) involved and shall issue a written determination, which shall be delivered, to the complainant and the district employee.
A complainant who is dissatisfied with the determination of the immediate supervisor has the right to appeal the matter in writing to the next administrative level. The supervisor shall identify in writing for the complainant the next administrative level appeal. If the decision at the next administrative level fails to resolve the matter the complainant may seek resolution by appealing the matter in writing to the Superintendent or his designee. The decision of the Superintendent or designee is final.
