Student Appeal Procedure
When a student believes that his/her rights have been violated or that a rule has been applied incorrectly or unfairly, he/she has recourse through the student appeals procedure. If a student has attempted, without success, to have a problem resolved, he or she may appeal the decision to the appropriate staff member as listed below.
Student Appeal Process Levels
1st Level: Students should try to resolve any class problems with the teacher of that class. If the problem is not satisfactorily resolved, the student should seek the advice and assistance of the counselor or the department resource teacher as appropriate.
2nd Level: If a complaint has not been resolved satisfactorily at the first level, the student may appeal to his or her administrator. The appeal should be submitted within five school days. The administrator will render a decision within five days.
3rd Level: If the complaint has not been resolved satisfactorily at the second level, the student may appeal to the principal in writing within five school days.
4th Level: If the complaint has not been resolved satisfactorily, the student may then appeal to the Special Services Supervisor at the Up County Field Office in writing.
