Central Unified School District

Every Student, Every Classroom, Every Day

Complaint Procedures and Forms

The Governing Board believes that the quality of the educational program can improve when the District listens to complaints, considers differences of opinion, and resolves disagreements through an established process. Complainants are encouraged to resolve concerns early and informally whenever possible. If concerns remain unresolved, a formal complaint may be submitted as early as possible in accordance with the appropriate district procedures. 
Please note: Individual Board members do not have authority to resolve complaints. If approached directly with a complaint, Board members may refer a complainant to the Superintendent or designee so that concerns may receive proper consideration.
Complaint Procedures and Forms
The following complaint procedures and forms have been created in alignment with District board policies (BP), administrative regulations (AR), and applicable state/federal laws and regulations. If it is unclear which procedure applies to a complaint, the Superintendent (or Designee) shall determine the correct procedure. The Superintendent or Designee's decision shall be final. 
Please select the form that best describes your concern.
