P 2125 Student Complaints and Grievances

Alleged acts of unfairness or any decision made by school personnel, except as otherwise provided for under student suspension and expulsion, which students and/or parents/guardians believe to be unjust or in violation of pertinent policies of the Board or individual school rules, may be appealed to the school principal or a designated representative.

The following guidelines are established for the presentation of student complaints and grievances:

  1. The principals shall schedule a conference with the student and any staff members involved to attempt to resolve the problem. Parents/Guardians may be involved in the conference, or a later conference for parents/guardians may be scheduled at the discretion of the principal.
  2. If the problem is not resolved to the satisfaction of the student and/or parents/guardians, a request may be submitted for a conference with the Superintendent. The Superintendent shall arrange a conference to consider the problem and to inform participants of the action that will be taken.
  3. If the student and/or parents/guardians are not satisfied with the action of the Superintendent, they may submit a written request to appear before the Board. Unless required by law, a hearing will be at the discretion of the Board. The decision of the Board shall be final.

All persons are assured that they may utilize this procedure without reprisal.
