Public Suggestions and Concerns
The Board of Directors is interested in receiving suggestions and concerns from members of the community. Any individual may make a suggestion or express a concern at any System or School office. All suggestions and/or concerns will be referred to the appropriate level staff member or System administrator who is most able to respond in a timely manner. Each concern or suggestion shall be considered on its merit.
An individual who is not satisfied may file a grievance under Board policy 2:260, Uniform Grievance Procedure. The Board encourages, but does not require, individuals to follow the channels of authority prior to filing a grievance. Neither this policy nor the Uniform Grievance Procedure create an independent right to a hearing before the Board.
