Antelope Valley Union HSD | BP 1312.1 Community Relations
Complaints Concerning District Employees
The Board of Trustees accepts responsibility for providing a means by which the public can hold employees accountable for their actions. The Board desires that complaints be resolved expeditiously without disrupting the educational process.
Parents/guardians are encouraged to first resolve their concerns informally with the employee directly affected. If not resolved informally, verbal or written complaints are to be referred to the site administrator.
The Superintendent or designee shall develop regulations which permit the public to submit complaints against district employees in an appropriate way. These regulations shall protect the rights of involved parties. The Board may serve as an appeals body if the complaint is not resolved. The Board prohibits retaliation against complainants.
