109.00 Complaint & Grievance Protocols

When permissible under law and/or policy, the district endeavors to answer questions and resolve problems at the organizational level nearest to the complaint. To that end, employees shall, whenever possible, direct questions and/or concerns to their immediate supervisor(s). Students, parents, and other members of the school community shall raise questions and/or concerns first with a relevant certified employee and then, if necessary, with the relevant building principal. Administrators shall be responsible for attempting to resolve questions and problems raised by the employees and/or the students they supervise, as well as by other members of the school community within their purview.

If resolution is not possible at the lowest level, an individual may raise the issue with the superintendent/designee within 15 school days of discussion with the principal and/or immediate supervisor.
