Communication Process

Questions, concerns, and ideas routinely arise during the school year. This outline is provided to assist in communication with the appropriate person.

Step 1: Questions or concerns regarding instructional practices should go to the teacher first. A discussion should be scheduled with the principal if you still have questions after talking with the teacher.
Step 2: If applicable, items not resolved in Step 1 should be directed to the administrator or director who has responsibility in the area of concern.
Step 3: A conference with the superintendent is most appropriately held if questions or concerns have not been adequately addressed at earlier levels.
Step 4: The final level of contact with the district about a question or concern is the Board of Education.
