Complaints Concerning Staff or Programs

Citizen Complaints

The Clover Park School District Board of Directors believes it is a fundamental right of citizens to express concerns regarding the educational programs or activities of the district. Complaints concerning district programs or personnel will be dealt with expeditiously in consideration of fair and ethical treatment of all persons.

The district has developed procedures under separate policies to be followed in processing concerns specifically related to the following: (1) rights of individuals with disabilities (2) concerns regarding learning materials (3) cases of alleged sex discrimination and (4) sexual harassment complaints. Persons with concerns in one of these four areas are encouraged to seek assistance from the superintendent’s office in identifying appropriate procedures. Persons with concerns or complaints not related to the four categories above should refer to the procedures.

A citizen expressing a complaint directly to a board member will be referred to the appropriate district policy. This policy is not intended to prevent a person from offering comment or suggestion at the appropriate time during a regular board meeting.
