Complaints Concerning District Employees
The Governing Board 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.
The Board places trust in its employees and desires to support their actions in such manner that employees are freed from unwarranted, spiteful or negative criticism and complaints.
The Superintendent or designee shall develop regulations which will 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.
Verbal complaints against an employee initially made to a Board member will be referred to the Superintendent or designee for appropriate consideration and action according to administrative regulations.
