Policy & Procedures

Parents should use the District Uniform Complaint Procedure to identify and resolve any deficiencies regarding instructional materials, facility cleanliness, and safety, emergency or urgent facility conditions that pose a health or safety threat to students or staff, and teacher vacancies or misassignments.

Every school must provide sufficient textbooks and instructional materials.  Every student, including English learners, must have textbooks and instructional materials, or both, to use at home or after school.  School facilities must be clean, safe, and maintained in good repair.  There should be no teacher vacancies or misassignments.  If a school is found to have deficiencies in these areas, and the school does not take corrective action, then a complaint form may be obtained from the School District Office.  Parents, students, teachers or any member of the public may submit a complaint regarding these issues.  However, it is highly encouraged that individuals express their concerns to the school principal before completing the complaint forms to allow the school to respond to these concerns.
