KL PUBLIC COMPLAINTS
K - SCHOOL-COMMUNITY RELATIONS
Constructive criticism of the schools or school employees will be welcomed by the Board when it serves to improve the educational program.
Although no member of the community shall be denied the right to petition the Board for solution of a complaint, the Board believes that complaints and grievances are best handled and resolved as close to their origin as possible. Therefore, complaints shall be referred back through the proper channels for solution before investigation or action by the Board. Exceptions are complaints that concern Board actions or Board operations only.
The proper channeling of complaints involving instruction, discipline or learning materials is as follows:
3. Superintendent; and,
Members of the Board shall refuse to handle complaints individually or to deal independently with those who have complaints. Individual members have no authority to commit the Board to any course of action. Complaints of a serious nature shall be made in writing and presented to the Board as a whole.
