Investigation of Complaint 

  • Within 10 business days after the compliance officer receives the complaint, the compliance officer shall begin an investigation into the complaint. 

  • Within three business days of initiating the investigation, the compliance officer must offer a meeting to the person who made the complaint and/or their representative. 

This meeting is also an opportunity to present any evidence or information to support the allegations in the complaint. The compliance officer will individually interview all available witnesses with information pertinent to the complaint as part of the investigation. 

  • To investigate a complaint alleging retaliation or unlawful discrimination (such as discriminatory harassment, intimidation, or bullying), the compliance officer will interview the alleged victim(s), any alleged offenders, and other relevant witnesses privately, separately, and in a confidential manner. As necessary, additional staff or legal counsel may conduct or support the investigation. 

  • The compliance officer will apply a "preponderance of the evidence" standard in determining the veracity of the factual allegations in a complaint. This standard is met if the allegation is more likely to be true than not.

Report of Findings 

Unless extended by written agreement with the complainant, the compliance officer will prepare and send to the complainant a written report within 60 calendar days of the district's receipt of the complaint. 

Final Written Decision

The district's decision on how it will resolve the complaint will be sent in writing to the complainant. 

Corrective Actions 

When a complaint is found to have merit, the compliance officer will suggest to the any appropriate corrective action permitted by law. Appropriate corrective actions that focus on the larger school or district environment may include, but are not limited to, actions to reinforce district policies; training for faculty, staff, and students; updates to school policies; or school climate surveys.
