How to submit a request for discussion/agenda item to the Board:
The person shall provide written information at least two weeks prior to the regular meeting of the board. Written information directly from the person shall be placed in the board packet distributed to directors prior to the regular meeting. If the person so requests and the Chair of the board agrees, the item shall be placed on the agenda for board attention. Seeking to add issues to the agenda via the Chair cannot circumvent the Conflict Resolution Policy. If the person requests the board take a particular action, the specific action being requested should be in the written document submitted to the board by the person.
Conflict Resolution Policies:
Most concerns are due to simple misunderstandings and/or miscommunications. As such, parents are requested, when appropriate, to contact a faculty/staff member directly with questions or concerns. If the family and faculty/staff member are unable to resolve a concern, the parent may request the help of the administration.
The grievance procedure may be used for any situation occurring within the operation or normal procedures of the school that causes a student or parent to believe the student has been wronged. A student, parent, or guardian may initiate the procedure when they believe that a violation, misapplication or misinterpretation of policy, or state or federal law or regulation has occurred.
Grievance Procedure Step 1: Conference with Administrator: Any student or parent wishing to invoke the grievance procedure shall make a written request for a conference with the administrator to discuss the grievance and seek resolution. The request shall describe the grievance and name the specific policy, rule, or law believed to have been violated. The following additional guidelines shall be observed in Step 1: § A grievance shall be filed as soon as possible, but no longer than ten (10) days after the disclosure of the facts giving rise to the grievance. § The administrator shall grant a conference within five (5) school days following receipt of the request. The administrator shall communicate his/her position on the question within five (5) school days following the conference. § Only the parent, guardian, or someone acting in loco parentis and legal representation shall be permitted to join or represent the student in the conference with the administrator. Step 2: Appeal to the Board of Directors: If the grievance is not resolved at Step 1, it may be appealed to the Board of Directors. A written appeal must be made within ten (10) days following the written response of the school administrator in Step 1. Written appeals may be submitted to the Board secretary. The Board shall consider the written testimony of both parties and render a written decision within fourteen (14) days of the next regularly scheduled Board meeting.
