Complaints Concerning District Employees   

arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board accepts responsibility for providing a means by which the public can hold employees accountable for their actions. The Board desires that complaints be resolved expeditiously without disrupting the educational process.

Criticisms against staff members will be investigated pursuant to the procedures set forth in AR 1312.1. However, this procedure will not apply to complaints of employment discrimination (see AR 4031); sexual harassment complaints (see 4119.11 - employees); (see AR 5145.7 - students); complaints concerning instructional materials (see AR 1312.2); and complaints controlled by the Uniform Complaint Procedure (see AR 1312.3).

The Superintendent or designee shall develop regulations which permit the public to submit complaints against district employees in an appropriate way. These regulations shall protect the rights of involved parties. The Board may serve as an appeals body if the complaint is not resolved.

(cf. 1312.2 - Complaints Concerning Instructional Material)

(cf. 1312.3 - Uniform Complaint Procedures)

(cf. 3515.2 - Disruptions)

The Board prohibits retaliation against complainants. The Superintendent or designee at his/her discretion may keep a complainant's identity confidential, except to the extent necessary to investigate the complaint. The district will not investigate anonymous complaints unless it so desires.

Education Code 44811 makes it a misdemeanor for a parent/guardian or other person to materially disrupt classwork or extracurricular activities or cause substantial disorder in a place where a school employee is required to be in the course of his/her duties. This misdemeanor is punishable by a fine, imprisonment or both.
