School and Community Relations

(Public Complaints - Policy 1480)

Although no member of the community shall be denied the right to petition the Board of Education for redress of a grievance, the complaints will be referred through the proper administrative channels for solution before investigation or action by the Board. Exceptions are complaints that concern Board actions or Board operations only.


The Board advises the public that the proper channeling of complaints involving instruction, discipline, or learning materials is as follows:

  1. Complaint should be discussed, first, with the appropriate teacher.
  2. If the community member is not content with the teacher conference, they may request a conference with the administrator.
  3. If the community member is still not satisfied with the outcome of the conference with the administrator, they may request to be placed on the agenda to meet with the Board.
  4. A five (5) minute time limit is placed on Public Complaints presented to the Board.
