Should a concern regarding program admission, participation or completion arise, a teacher should follow this protocol:
- Meet with the Program Administrator to discuss and resolve the concern, if possible. The teacher should attend the meeting prepared to share any evidence of program participation or completion that would support his/her claim(s).
- If the concern cannot be resolved within 7 days following the meeting, present the grievance, in writing, to the Program Director. The grievance should be clearly and concisely described, and should include the Program Administrator’s response, and the specific remedy sought.
- The Program Director will discuss the concern with the Leadership Team, considering all evidence and documentation provided by the teacher and Program Administrator, and will make and deliver a final decision as to the resolution of the issue within 14 days of the receipt of the written claim.
- If the teacher wishes to appeal this decision, he/she should appeal to the Superintendent in writing within 7 days. The grievance should be clearly and concisely described, and should include the Program Administrator’s response, Leadership Team’s response, and the specific remedy sought. The Superintendent’s decision shall be final.
