PUBLIC COMPLAINTS CONCERNING SCHOOL PERSONNEL

The School Board places trust in its employees and desires to support their actions in such manner that employees are freed from unwarranted criticism and complaints.  The Superintendent shall develop procedures which will permit the public to lodge complaints against staff members, assure full consideration, and protect the rights of the staff members and the District.  Verbal complaints against an employee initially made to a Board member or at a Board meeting will be referred to the Superintendent for appropriate response.
