Parents/guardians enjoy great relationships with their student's teachers, principal, and other professionals at school. We all want to do what is best for the student. However, sometimes questions or concerns arise. When this happens, what should you do? Here are the steps to follow.
1. Start with your child’s teacher.
Disputes and misunderstandings are often best resolved in person and may be the result of miscommunication. Often, misunderstandings can be cleared up or issues addressed through a courteous conversation at the school level.
2. If the issue isn't resolved, talk to a school administrator.
If you feel you were unable to resolve the issue with school staff, schedule a meeting to discuss the situation with your school principal.
3. The last step is to contact the District Office.
If you still feel that your concerns have not been resolved to your satisfaction after following the steps above, please contact the Superintendent’s Office at (916) 649-5248. If you have not taken the steps above to resolve the issue with the school, we may refer you back to the school site.
Children learn how to handle real-life situations from the behavior of adults around them. As a district, we strive to model for students how to resolve issues in a courteous, respectful, and effective way.
