Parent Grievance Policy: 
Concerns & Guidelines for Resolving School-Related Problems:

It is our belief that the large majority of misunderstandings and problems can be resolved through discussion between the parent/guardian and the teacher and/or appropriate school personnel. These guidelines are designed to provide a step-by-step process for parents when they are attempting to resolve an issue.

  1. You should make every effort to gather accurate facts before contacting the school. It may help to have the concern described in writing. If the concern is not resolved to your satisfaction after meeting or talking with the teacher you should go to the next step.

  2. Call the principal of the school. Ask him/her to establish a conference with the appropriate person at a mutually agreeable time.

  3. Schedule a conference with the principal. If you have exhausted all possibilities at the school level, the principal will advise you of the appropriate person to contact, such as a member of the Board of Directors, whose names and contact information are listed on the school website.

  4. We have found that when these steps are followed that most concerns are satisfactorily resolved at step one. The other steps are provided for you as additional means of resolving your problems or concerns. Misunderstandings will more likely be resolved if they are approached in a positive and courteous manner with recommendations that are realistic. 

    Your school staff is here to do the best job possible with your student. We can provide many educational opportunities, but it is done best when we work together.
