Policy JGDZ

A student or parent has the right to express concern (orally or in writing) about a condition, circumstance, or restriction imposed by the teacher or school administrator within a reasonable time frame. The teacher or administrator has the responsibility to respond to the concern and explain a rationale in a reasonable time frame.

If the student or parent is not satisfied with the response, the decision of the teacher or administrator may be appealed. An appeal means a written expression of concern that should be reviewed by the next higher level of authority. A written response to the appeal should be sent within ten days.

This policy is subject to and does not supersede other policies that include a specific appeal process.
