Grievance Process

If, at any time, a parent/guardian has a concern about their child’s education program, school policies or school administration, the following steps should be taken:


1. A request for a meeting/conference with the person directly involved with the concern should be requested. The CECPB staff/administration has the right to request a supervisor at this meeting.


2. If the issue is not resolved at this meeting, a written request should be made to meet with the staff/administration’s direct supervisor. Minutes will be recorded at this meeting.


3. If the issue is unable to be resolved at this meeting, a written request to meet with the CECPB’s board president should be made and a meeting will be scheduled within 3 working days. The board president will meet with both parties to mediate and resolve the issue. Minutes will be recorded at this meeting.


4. If the issue is not satisfactorily resolved at this meeting, the parent can request the issue be brought to the general board. The board before the meeting will review the minutes of the above meetings. Each person will have the opportunity to state his or her concerns/response to the concerns. The CECPB board will make the final determination.
