Uniform Complaint Procedures
Under Governing Board Policy 1312.3, the Governing Board recognizes that the District is responsible for complying with applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs. Under the Governing Board Policy, it is possible to submit a formal complaint against an employee, school, or the school district in regards to alleging unlawful discrimination based on ethnic group
identification, religion, age, gender, sex, sexual orientation, color, race, ancestry, national origin, or mental or physical disability. Uniform complaint procedures shall also be used when addressing complaints alleging failure to comply with state or federal laws in consolidated categorical aid programs, migrant education, adult education, vocational education, child care and development programs, child nutrition programs, and special educational programs. The complaint must have the name of the complainant and the current address to which a response may be delivered. Discrimination complaints shall be investigated in a manner that protects the confidentiality of the parties and the facts. If the response is not satisfactory, a complaint may be brought to the district Governing Board.
