STAFF COMPLAINTS AND GRIEVANCES
It is the policy of the District, in keeping with the ultimate goals of serving the educational welfare of students, to develop and practice reasonable and effective methods of resolving difficulties, which may arise among employees. The intent is to increase efficiency and effectiveness of the District's employees, reducing potential areas of grievances, and maintain recognized channels of communication between staff and administration.
In an effort to resolve problems or concerns at the lowest possible level and in an informal manner, all staff members are encouraged to discuss any school-related grievance or complaint with their immediate supervisor. If the staff member and immediate supervisor are unable to reach a satisfactory resolution to the staff member’s grievance or complaint, the staff member is encouraged to discuss the grievance or complaint with the Superintendent or one of the Assistant Superintendents.
If a complaint or grievance cannot be resolved after informal meetings with an immediate supervisor, Assistant Superintendent, or the Superintendent, the party making the complaint or grievance must complete and submit the grievance form contained in GBM-R1 to his/her direct supervisor in accordance with the procedures set forth in policy GBM-R.
These provisions and guidelines are established to improve communications and resolve problems at the lowest level possible and are not to be construed to deprive a person of a hearing in accordance with the Wyoming Administrative Procedures Act.
