Student complaints and grievances regarding board policy, administrative regulations, and other matters should be addressed to the student's teacher or another licensed employee, other than the administration, for resolution of the complaint. It is the goal of the board to resolve student complaints at the lowest organizational level.
If the complaint cannot be resolved by a licensed employee, the student may discuss the matter with the building principal within 10 days of the employee's decision. If the matter cannot be resolved by the building principal, the student may discuss it with the superintendent within 10 days after speaking with the building principal.
If the matter is not satisfactorily resolved by the superintendent, the student may request to have the matter placed on the board agenda of a regularly scheduled board meeting in compliance with board policy.
