1312.1 BP - Complaints Concerning District Employees

Community Relations
Board Policy No. 1312
Adopted March 19, 2015

COMPLAINTS CONCERNING DISTRICT EMPLOYEES

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.

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.  Complaints against employees shall utilize the complaint process outlined in AR 1312.1 – Complaints Concerning District Employees.

Any complaint alleging employment discrimination shall be sent to the California Department of Fair Employment and Housing and the compliance officer shall notify the complainant by first class mail of the transfer.

(cf. 1312.2 - Complaints Concerning Instructional Material)

(cf. 1312.3 - Uniform Complaint Procedures)

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.
